Roanoke's Gold Rush

City Slickers Moving to Roanoke

Located on the railroad, Roanoke was a cattle center in its early days. The town had two saloons, a horse trough, and a water tank - all located on the center of what is now Oak Street. Roanoke's prime location halfway between Fort Worth and Denton has been discovered by "city folk" who are now close to outnumbering the cattle.

Roanoke's low crime rate, country ambiance, and easy access to Metroplex amenities is such a draw for "city slickers" that the area has become a vast economic entity.

Denton County Location is Enviable

Roanoke is located in southern Denton County and counts Trophy Club and Southlake as its neighbors to the east. The Alliance Gateway (and Texas Motor Speedway) through North Fort Worth is on Roanoke's west. Keller is just south of Roanoke across the Denton/Tarrant county line.

Strong employment opportunities for Roanoke residents stretch way beyond the “Golden Corridor" of the Alliance area. Because Roanoke's location is at what one could call a “trifecta” along State Highways 114, 377 and 170, much of the DFW Metroplex is easily accessible for commuters as well. As an added bonus, both Denton County tax rates and property insurance rates tend to run lower than those of neighboring Tarrant County.

Times Are Changing

Roanoke Remakes Itself

The city was a cattle center in its early days. Today "city folk" are close to outnumbering the cattle. Roanoke was named the "Unique Dining Capital of Texas", so be sure and try out some of the city's 40 plus restaurants which mainly populate the thriving downtown area.

And while you're there, stop by the Visitor Center and Museum to learn more about Roanoke's colorful past. The museum is in the original 1886 Silver Spur Saloon. (And you thought a name like that was only in the movies, didn't you?)

Roanoke Looks Toward Continued Growth

With a population of around just 8000 it may not sound like little old Roanoke has joined the gold rush that accompanies the State Highway 114 growth going on all around the city. But this tiny town of just about 6.5 square miles (after incorporating the town of Marshall Creek in 2007) has seen a population explosion of over 350% since 2000.

While still retaining the laid back country charm that it's known for, Roanoke is also embracing the changes that come with new residents. New grocery stores, movie theaters, medical centers and fast food restaurants have popped up across town with more on the way. Strip shops host veterinarians, hair salons and dry cleaners.

 

We definitely wanted a new house, but we didn't want to leave the Northwest schools. We were looking around in other areas of Ft. Worth, but then Cindy showed us the difference in the tax rates. That was all it took for Al to say "Roanoke or bust". We found a great neighborhood with playgrounds and a pool. And the elementary school is inside the neighborhood too.

Home buyer in Roanoke's Briarwyck neighborhood

 

The city has also stepped up it's services too with more recent additions of a state-of-the-art recreation center and City Hall. There's even a new Peabody Hotel downtown. Roanoke home buyers are finding it more and more attractive to dine, shop and have fun locally.

Of course, the retail is just following the growth of new housing developments in this metroplex "hot spot". Several new home subdivisions will be offering opportunities for Roanoke home buyers that will extend into the next few years.

So what drives all this growth? Roanoke's easy access to major employment centers for starters. And the desirable Northwest School District for another. New home prices, while above the DFW Metroplex median, remain reasonable compared to neighboring cities. And the laid back, friendly atmosphere Roanoke embraces, though not tangible, goes a long way in the mind of area home buyers.
