Roxbury was once a farming community littered with so many rocks in the soil that it was literally called "Rocksberry" — no joke!
This neighborhood is home to the historic Shirley Eustis House, the only remaining country house in America built by a British Royal Colonial Governor. Today this neighborhood, which serves as the heart of Black culture in Boston, is undergoing a renaissance. Hundreds of new business and housing initiatives have revitalized the neighborhood's Dudley Square, Crosstown, and Grove Hall areas.

The dramatic transformation of Blue Hill Avenue from a street lined with vacant lots to a dynamic business district is one of former Mayor Menino's proudest achievements. The Roxbury Center for the Arts, Culture, and Trade, which opened in 2005, celebrates the cultural richness of the community through the visual and performance arts.
