Where is Roxbury, Massachusetts, USA? 

Roxbury, Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts, USA
Early settlers of the Massachusetts Bay Colony established a series of six villages in 1630. The village of Roxbury (originally called “Rocksberry” for the rocks in its soil that made early farming a challenge,) has long been noted for its hilly geography and many large outcroppings of Roxbury puddingstone, which was quarried for many years and used in the foundations of a large number of houses in the area.wikipedia
