Welcome to the beautiful and historically rich Roanoke Valley region of North Carolina. Nestled within the northeastern portion of the state, along Interstate 95 and just south of the Virginia state line, the Roanoke Valley is comprised of the communities of both Halifax and Northampton counties – an area of more than 76,000 residents and a strong and diverse economic base.
The region is a great place to live and work, providing a high quality of life that anyone can enjoy. The community is well served by excellent public school districts, private institutions and, for the college-bound, Halifax Community College. First-rate healthcare is supplied through Halifax Regional Medical Center and Our Community Hospital, and plenty of employment opportunities lie within the paper manufacturing, molded plastics, wood products, fabricated metal and agricultural industries.
The Roanoke Valley is also a fantastic place to visit, with its vast collection of museums, theatres, malls, golf courses, annual festivals and more. Often noted as the state’s “Cradle of History,” the region hosts Historic Halifax, the birthplace of the Halifax Resolves – a resolution that paved the way for the creation of the U.S. Declaration of Independence. Other must-see sites in the Valley include Medoc Mountain State Park, the Roanoke Canal Museum & Trail, Riverside Mill antique mall and gallery and, for the outdoorsy type, Lake Gaston, a top destination for fishing, boating and swimming.
Now has never been a better time to discover all the benefits to living, working and visiting North Carolina‘s Roanoke Valley. For more information on the region, contact the Roanoke Valley Chamber of Commerce:
