Roxbury - General Cleanup

ATVANS NEWS - Mon, 11/22/2021 - 09:13

It is very important to preserve our history and also to protect it. It is also important to have groups, such as ACAMUTS, who understand and appreciate our heritage, to protect it and make it more accessible to the general public.

On Sunday, November 7, 2021, several members of the Society ventured to Roxbury and did a fantastic undertaking of a general cleanup of the settlement … including the two cemeteries and erecting teepees around a number of wells.

The area, now referred to as Roxbury, was once occupied by Mi’kmaq, French Acadian and finally by English Loyalists at the turn of the 1800s. The last inhabitants, homesteaders in the 1920s, only stayed for a few years. Since then the area has attracted hunters, fishermen, campers and the curious. From the 1970s onward Roxbury, originally called Durland’s Settlement, has become a hikers challenge, ATV trip, skidoo outing or a truck/car trek. But overall it remains a place of lure and mystery. One always asks who settled there and why!

Thanks again to ACAMUTS and its members for keeping the doors of history open.
