Town of Vinton

Vinton Kids & Dog - Town of VintonThe Town of Vinton's history began long before it was chartered in 1884.

The town can trace its heritage back to the mid-1700s, when the area was first settled, and even farther back in time when the area was part of an Indian trail which led to the Carolinas.

Settlers began moving into the Roanoke Valley area in the mid-1700s to take advantage of the fertile land and abundant water supply.

The Town of Vinton is located in Roanoke County, and is bordered on its western and northern limits by the City of Roanoke.

Vinton provides small town character with urban services and amenities located nearby. There are also opportunities for outdoor recreation, such as sections of the Roanoke Valley Greenway network and the town's Tinker Creek Canoe Lunch.

Enjoy locally-brewed craft beer at Twin Creeks Brewing Company and popular local restaurants such as New York Pizza, The Dogwood Restaurant, and Red Jasmine Thai Cuisine.

You can also get a photo with the Vinton themed LOVE art in front of the Vinton War Memorial.

The small town atmosphere is characterized by a low crime rate, small locally and regionally owned businesses, and moderately priced homes.

Views of the mountains and Blue Ridge Parkway abound.

Vinton represents the ideal type of community, small enough to provide a feeling of "belonging," yet progressive enough to provide the facilities, services, and conveniences that are necessary to make a community "home" to its citizens.
