1002 Roxbury is the longtime home of comedian JACK BENNY, a wonderful brick home, with a large bay window, and brick walkways. Back in 1944, Jack and his wife Mary set up a huge tent in their back yard for a New Year's Eve party, which was attended by (among others) Clark Gable, Judy Garland, Bing Crosby, Errol Flynn, Ginger Rogers, Tyrone Power, Claudette Colbert, Dorothy Lamour, Robert Taylor, Joan Crawford, Sam Goldwyn and David O. Selznick!
A neighbor, annoyed by gawking tourists, once put up a sign in his front yard, with an arrow pointing to Jack's house, which read: "Jack Benny Does Not Live Here. He Lives There."
