Roxbury Heritage State Park Master Plan / by Jason Turgeon

Click the link above for a trip back in time to the dawn of the Roxbury Heritage State Park. The park, originally conceived of by the Roxbury Action Program in the ’70s, finally came to fruition at the end of the 1980s.  Sadly, it never got all the funding the planners hoped for.  In particular, the incorporation of the Owen Nawn Factory on Washington Street as a permanent exhibition center for Roxbury History never came to fruition, and the building is now only about 1/3 of the size it was then.  Hopefully Historic Boston Inc., with new headquarters right next door to the Nawn Factory, will be able to help.
