The rural economy of North Carolina's Roanoke River region

Record #:
Since the economic downturn in the 1990s, community members in the Roanoke River region have developed a tourism economy to capitalize on the area's natural resources. Roanoke River Partners, Inc, was created in 1997, and since then, an antique trail, a Civil War trail, a recreational paddle trail, and a camping system have helped boost the region's economy.
