Roanoke County

Nestled in the heart of the Blue Ridge, the Roanoke County of today is the product of a long and varied history. The land itself was carved out of an ancient mountain range which left a great basin of fertile ground at the foot of Appalachia. Roanoke County remains dedicated to promoting a high quality of life and ample opportunity for its residents.
