As with several other Jersey towns, Roxbury was a key hub of the Revolutionary War effort. It was an iron mining center that supplied George Washington and the Continental Army with firearms and equipment. It wasn’t until 1798 that the town was officially incorporated by the legislature of New Jersey, and the building of the Morris Canal in 1827 spurred the growth of transportation and business.  Roxbury came to be known as a gateway to the popular resorts of Lake Hopatcong, and Tom's Diner was featured in Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time" video.
