Didn't realize that the visitor center was also the site of the O. Winston Link Museum and restored Roanoke Norfolk & Western Railway Passenger Station. Awesome history as told to us by our tour guide.

The downtown of Roanoke is a piece of history. Beautiful buildings, antiques, old painted advertising on the building walls But quite expensive. Both restaurants and stores... a pity
