Roanoke Travel Guide

Roanoke Local History

Once a part of the Creek Indian territory, early pioneers settled in the area and in 1832 the Alabama General Assembly established and named the area as Randolph County. Roanoke, the largest city in Randolph County, is located in the southeastern corner of the county.

In the mid 1830's, the Alabama Gold Rush resulted in a thriving gold mining industry, then the Great California Gold Rush resulted in the miners going west

Agriculture soon became the area's economic backbone. The railway soon came to Roanoke and established a number of industries in the city and prosperity followed.
