A Colonial Tour from TeachersFirst: Roanoke

The settlement of Roanoke in 1585 marks the beginning of permanent English settlement on the North American continent. But Roanoke's fame lies not in what the English did there, but in that the colonists had disappeared when the expedition's leaders returned with more supplies. The fate of this small band remains a mystery to this day.

Roanoke lies on North Carolina's outer banks, a popular summer location with numerous other attractions. While there are no reconstructions of the lost colony, there are lots of legends, and a visit to the historic site is well worth the time if you're in the area. The links beblow with give you more information.
