Mission Statement

The mission of the Roxbury Historic Trust, Inc. is to provide a unique opportunity for people to discover their heritage through interpretation of the King Store and King House Museums. Visitors explore the roles of the King and Riggs families in the development of the Morris Canal, the Roxbury community and the region from the 1820s through the 1930s, a time of tremendous growth and innovation in our nation.

Description

The Roxbury Historic Trust, Inc. was created in1990 to preserve and curate the Museums at Drakesville Historic Park (the King Store and King House Museums.) It is an entirely volunteer organization dedicated to the preservation and historical renovation of the museums, both of which are listed on the New Jersey and National Register of Historic Places. The museums are open from April through December for both regular openings and special events. Admission is always free. Tours of the museums are available to individuals and groups and exhibits include "Miss Louise's School Room," a historically accurate representation of a one-room schoolhouse c. 1900 and "Hidden Faces," exploring Lenape cultural survival through the 19th and 20th centuries, during the Third Crow period of hiding.
