Roanoke Island

Roanoke Island

Few locations can rival the historical scope of Roanoke Island, which was the site of some of the earliest interactions between Native Americans and English colonists.

Roanoke Island, NC was settled as early as 1585 by the fabled explorer Sir Walter Raleigh, almost 200 years before the revolution of 1776. What happened to that first colony of around 120 men, women and children – including the infant Virginia Dare, the first English child to be born in what would become the United States – remains shrouded in mystery. When English ships returned to the island in 1590, crews found no trace of the settlers, who are thought to have tried to reach Croatoan – now Hatteras – Island, after an unknown catastrophe.

The island was later successfully settled, and modern day Roanoke Island, NC is an important community on the Outer Banks. Almost 7,000 residents call this place home, and the number of local occupants rises to 30,000 during the summer vacation season.

Connected to the mainland and to other locations on the Outer Banks via Highway 64, the modern community of Roanoke is a fantastic place to purchase a property. The town of Manteo features a range of amenities, shops, and restaurants, all of which are perfect for staying entertained, while outdoor types will have their needs catered to by the rolling countryside and stunning beaches which abound here.
