Overview of West Roxbury

Located in the Boston, MA neighborhood locals like to call "Southy," the area known as West Roxbury is one of Masschussetts' finest communities. Once home to a Bohemian, burgeoning population, the tree-lined streets and single family homes in this charming neighborhood are gaining in popularity.
