Roanoke Apartments for Rent
A narrow road lined with shabby, false-fronted buildings is the opening shot of nearly every Western movie. A lone cowboy, a saloon, tumbleweeds blowing in the wind — classic Old West, and that feel is still very much alive in Roanoke, Texas.
Tiny Roanoke, the “Rising Star of the Metroplex,” has a population just over 6,000. But despite its small size, Roanoke delivers on historic charm, shopping, restaurants, and outdoor entertainment. Enjoy eating at the world-famous Babe’s Fried Chicken, take a walking tour of historic sites, pick apples at the Orchard Apple Farm, or enjoy a day at any of Roanoke’s six beautiful parks.
Historic Downtown Roanoke is on the National Register of Historic Places, with buildings dating back to the mid-1800s. The 1886 Rock Building, originally the Silver Spur Saloon, lived up to the reputation of the Wild West with cowboys, a dance hall, and an upstairs brothel. Restored in 2007, the building now serves as the Roanoke Visitor’s Center and Museum.
Apartment rentals in Roanoke are surrounded with Old West charm and country life, but Fort Worth is 18 miles south and Dallas is just 30 miles away, offering everything from business and shopping to theaters and nightlife. With whispers of the old frontier mingled with modern life, Roanoke is a great place to call home.
