A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Roanoke ...
Although we found mention of Roanoke during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Roanoke was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it's a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Roanoke was located in Douglas County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Roanoke to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Roanoke - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Roanoke, please Contact Us.
When the people of Roanoke refer to themselves (known as a demonym), they frequently use Roanoker<2>
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Roanoke might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Roanoke would be found within the (402) & (531)<3> area codes.
