Roanoke River

Roanoke River

The Roanoke River flows southeast in a zigzag course bordering Martin County through the Roanoke River National Wildlife Refuge and then briefly turns north as it enters Batchelor Bay on the western end Albemarle Sound.

In 1657, it was known as “Morattico River”; in 1671 it was documented as “Noratake River.” Edward Moseley wrote the name “Roanoke River” on a map he created in 1733. It was home to many Native Americans and has subsequently played a significant role in American History.

The largest intact and least-disturbed bottomland hardwood forest ecosystem remaining in the mid-Atlantic Region is in the Roanoke River’s floodplain. Alluvial forests, tracts of bald cypress and water tupelo swamp forest hug the banks of the river.

The Roanoke River is home to a wide assortment of plants and wildlife, including more than 250 bird species.
