Roanoke is an unincorporated community located in Lewis County in north-central West Virginia. Most of the original town is under sixty feet of Stonewall Jackson Lake's water. A display at the Stonewall Resort State Park lodge tells the story of the unfortunate flood-plagued town. It was purchased in the 1980s by the United States Army Corps of Engineers and the flood control dam at Stonewall Jackson Lake went into service in 1988. The town of Roanoke has also been known as Bush Mills, Bushs Mills, Roanville and Roanville Station. A state park lies along the shores of Stonewall Jackson Lake, as does a beautiful, exclusive resort that covers 2,000 acres and offers abundant recreational and spa activities. Three restaurants are located at the lake, a marina with boat launch and rentals, a 125 passenger cruise boat and 3 rental houseboats and an 18-hole Arnold Palmer golf course. Just some of the other activities to enjoy include swimming, fishing, hiking, biking, camping and more. Over 82 miles of pristine shoreline offer incredible views of wildlife and forest. A full service spa is also available at the resort on the lake. The Stonewall Jackson Resort at Roanoke is located about ten miles south of Weston and three miles off the Roanoke Exit (Exit 91) off Interstate 79.
