The Roxbury Historic Trust has responsibility for the "King Canal Store" & the "King Home Museum" at 209-211 Main Street in Ledgewood. The Store and the Homestead Museum are open for tours on the second Sunday of the months of April thru December, from 1-4 PM. Overseen by volunteers from the Trust, this is well worth a visit. Operated by Theodore F. King from 1874 through 1928, the Store was originally built in 1826 and retains its turn of the Century appearance. The Trust is also restoring the adjacent 1881 Victorian House built by the King family. A newly restored Parlor and Exhibition rooms are open to the public. The Trust is very active and invites new members!
