Here and About- Roanoke, Indiana

On a country road not far from where I grew up,
 this bridge leads to the town of Roanoke, Indiana.

A place where hometown heart shows pride

and those who made a difference are remembered

and a legacy of blooms lives on

a sleepy town where new vision 
has brought new verve
for lunch options
featuring Wagyu Beef

or Four Star Fine Dining in the evening-
Joseph Decuis

for some retail therapy-
 Roanoke has some great options
the Trove

Cosmopolitan eye and display

Roanoke- a great mix
 of MidWest Americana
and small town optimism.
Just 16 miles from downtown Fort Wayne- 
off of Highway 24.
Worth a morning or afternoon jaunt.


  1. What a quaint little town! I would love to visit and shop for an antique treasure or two. :) Love your style of writing! (Visiting from The Angel Project :))

  2. I love these small town Indiana pictures! I am living in a small town in S. Indiana and I love the charm of it!

  3. Thanks so much for your kind words about Trove. My family is also from Roanoke and I love being a part of the revitalization of this friendly town. Memories of going to the drug store to sit at the soda fountain and going to the park for Fall Festival are a big part of my childhood. Loved seeing this and keep up the fun blog posts!
