Roanoke is an independent city located in the Roanoke Metropolitan Area in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The city of Roanoke is adjacent to the city of Salem and the town of V…inton and is otherwise surrounded by, but politically separate from, Roanoke County
Sir Walter Raleigh
He didn't discover anything. Ralegh never came to Roanoke Island. He was largely responsible for the organization and formation of the Roanoke voyages, but he did not partic…ipate in any of the four trips to this part of the New World. It is a common misconception that he traveled to Roanoke Island.
Roanoke is part of North Carolina.
The English bought the island of Roanoke from the Indians.
Yes. It is a small island between the mainland and the Outer Banks of eastern North Carolina and has a thriving population. The town of Manteo is the county seat of Dare Count…y and there is a small village on the south end of the island. This village is called Wanchese. There are three schools (elementary, middle, and high) and a community college. There are thriving businesses that cater to the year-round residents and the tourist population. There are several hotels, motels, B&Bs, summer rental properties, and many restaurants. Roanoke Island is also home to "The Lost Colony" which is an old and venerable outdoor drama telling the story of the Roanoke Voyages with a concentration on the 1587 colony. The show opened in 1937 and with the exception of a four-year hiatus during World War II the show has been performed every summer from June through mid-August. There are also several other performing arts venues and individual performing and visual arts organizations. We who are fortunate enough to live here enjoy a pretty, clean and healthy environment.
Today the land is claimed by North Carolina but back then it wasVirginia.
The 1587 group was deposited at Roanoke Island and the reasons for that are unclear. They were supposed to go further north to the Chesapeake to found their settlement. A "gen…tleman" on board made the decision to leave the settlers at Roanoke Island. The identity of the gentleman who made that decision has never been made.
