Roxana is an unincorporated community in southeastern Sussex County, Delaware. It is roughly centered on the intersection of Delaware Route 20 and Delaware Route 17. It is part of the Salisbury, Maryland-Delaware Metropolitan Statistical Area. An act to incorporate the "town of Roxana" was passed on March 26, 1909 by the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Delaware.[2]

Roxana is served by the Roxana Fire Company Station 90, which provides fire protection to the community along with nearby areas in southeastern Sussex County.[3] The Roxana Fire Company was founded in 1960.[4]

Roxana is also home to the Little League Baseball Senior League Softball World Series, held every year at the Lower Sussex Little League Complex north of the community.
