Roanoke Visitor Center & Museum

Come visit us at the Roanoke Visitor Center and Museum and see our beautifully restored rock building from 1886, the centerpiece of downtown Roanoke since the turn of the 20th century. The building was re-opened to the public in 2008 after a rigorous restoration.

Formerly the Silver Spur Saloon, the stately building also housed an upstairs brothel, dance hall, and much more. Enjoy our collection of local and regional artifacts and learn about the local legends of Roanoke's vibrant past. The Silver Spur Saloon Building was awarded a Texas Recorded Historic Landmark designation and received an award for Best Renovation from the Texas Downtown Association and Preservation Texas in 2009.
