The Roxbury Historic Trust serves as curator of the 1826 King Canal Store
& the 1881 King Victorian Home, located within the
Museums at Drakesville Historic Park, Ledgewood, New Jersey.
The Roxbury Historic Trust exists to preserve our local heritage and to educate the public about the history of the Township of Roxbury and its place in New Jersey and our nation. We have restored and preserved two National Register properties--the King Store Museum at 211 Main Street, Ledgewood, and the King Home Museum at 209 Main Street, Ledgewood. Both township-owned structures are currently leased to the Trust. The King Store was located just yards from the Morris Canal and prospered during the Canal's height of activity from 1831 to 1870 and continued to be the center of town activity through the 1920's. This area was once known as Drakesville before the adoption of the name Ledgewood.
