The town of Big Lick was established in 1852 and chartered in 1874. It was named for a large outcropping of salt which drew the wildlife to the site near the Roanoke River.It became the town of Roanoke in 1882 and was chartered as the independent city of Roanoke in 1884. The name Roanoke is said to have originated from an Algonquin word for shell money, but the town was almost certainly renamed for the river that bisected it and the county that had surrounded it since 1838. It grew frequently through annexation through the middle of the 20th century.
Today, Roanoke is known for its Chili Cook-Off, Strawberry Festival, and the large red, white, and blue illuminated Mill Mountain Star on Mill Mountain, which is visible from many points in the city and surrounding valley.
