Central Catskills Towns
The town of Roxbury, at the eastern edge of Delaware County, was the birthplace of naturalist John Burroughs and financier Jay Gould, and its history is still perfectly preserved. In 2004, the hamlet was designated a “Preserve America Community” by the National Parks Service, Department of Interior, and the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation. Today, the Main Street Historic District is picture-postcard-pretty, lined with old maples and beautiful homes and buildings of mid-to-late 1900’s architecture, like the Jay Gould Memorial Reformed Church, an impressive Gothic Revival structure. Behind the church is Kirkside Park, home to Roxbury’s vintage baseball team and an annual “Olden Days” event not to be missed. Roxbury is experiencing a renaissance these days with a cutting edge community radio station (WIOX), a famous boutique motel, and several new restaurants, shops, cafes, and galleries.
