The History Of Roanoke, West Virginia

"We know the first 'permanent' settler in the vicinity of Roanoke, WV was John Mitchell around 1812. Jacob Bush, John Hacker and others were in the area around the 1790's, and the Bushes, Mitchells, Smiths, Godfreys, Duvalls and others coming soon after, but the Village of Roanoke itself, was laid off in lots in the early 1870s. William Peterson surveyed a tract of 80 acres for Joseph Hall who began selling lots which became Roanoke. William Watson performed as the first Mayor, Chief of Police, and Town Council around 1871. Roanoke, it is said, was given its name by the Editor of the Weston Democrat, William E. Arnold, in honor of John Randolph of Roanoke, Virginia. The name Bush's Mill ceased to be. The village of Roanoke, WV then VA, was a small place inhabited by settlers around 1775 and was torn down when the Stonewall Jackson Dam took the land in the 1980's, and is now covered with water."
