Roanoke offers a peaceful, rural lifestyle while being a mere 15-minute drive to the urban attractions of Fort Wayne. It’s the fastest growing town in Huntington County. While this is, in part, due to its close proximity to Fort Wayne, it’s also due to the Eshelman family, who moved from New York City to northern Indiana in 1986. They bought a farm and soon after, decided to open a small restaurant in an old bank building. Their restaurant, Joseph Decuis, is now one of Indiana’s most highly awarded restaurants and they have opened two small bed and breakfasts and an event facility as well.
All of this development has revitalized Roanoke’s downtown area, where there are lots of events and festivals including: the Farmer’s Market, the Roanoke Fall Festival and Taste of Roanoke. A 25-acre park in the center of town boasts baseball diamonds, tennis courts and a picnic pavilion with a playground. So if you’re looking for an idyllic small town haven with delightful big city dining options and lots to do, consider laying down roots in this friendly, inviting town.
