This is a beautifully detailed, laser engraved and precision cut topographical Map of the Roanoke River between Northampton and Halifax Counties, North Carolina with the following interesting stats carved into it:
- The 130-mile stretch of the Roanoke River from Weldon downstream to Albemarle Sound was designated a national wildlife refuge in 1989.
- Canoeing the Roanoke River Paddle Trail and fishing are among the most popular activities along its bank.
- Rockfish Capital of the World
Interesting factoid: The Roanoke River, once known as the Moratuck, derived its name from an Indian group These Indians had a village by that name upon the river’s northern bank at present Cedar Landing in Bertie County. Both names, Moratuck and Roanoke, seem to be Algonquin. (Not all of this information made it onto the map, we just love to read up on the lakes we design).
This map can be personalized (at no additional charge) with up to two lines of engraving. Leave notes during checkout and we will email a graphic proof to you for approval prior to production. Example:
