    A diminshed sense of smell would be a good attribute for those interested in this position.

    Agree with this statement, but the smell was on I-95 so I don't know if it permeates throughout the town or not.

    Didn't the whole town disappear in 1586?

    Not the same place. The Roanoke colony was near Manteo on the Outer Banks. Roanoke Rapids is much further inland and sits very close to the Virginia border.

    Legend has it they moved to Robeson County, which I can assure you was a bad choice.
