Witches and Lost Colonists

We get lots of questions about another Salem, and that other Roanoke…

If you want information about the witches of Salem, we’re not that Salem. You are looking for Salem, Massachusetts.

If you are curious about the Lost Colony, that’s not here either. We are next door to Roanoke, Virginia, in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The lost colonists vanished from Roanoke Island, on the coast of North Carolina.

Want to know what IS here? Visit Virginia’s Blue Ridge to learn about our outstanding outdoor amenities, our craft beer breweries, national sports championships, and more history, arts and culture than you might expect for a region of our size. And the most beautiful mountains you’ll see anywhere.
