Roxbury is an unincorporated community and census-designated place about 14.8 miles east of Lindsborg in McPherson County, Kansas, United States. The population was 100 at the 1910 census.
For millennia, the land now known as Kansas was inhabited by Native Americans. In 1803, most of modern Kansas was secured by the United States as part of the Louisiana Purchase. In 1854, the Kansas Territory was organized, then in 1861 Kansas became the 34th U.S. state. In 1867, McPherson County was founded.
The original name for the area was Colfax City but the name was changed to Roxbury on March 4, 1875 due to an act of legislature.
