A Lewis County woman has been dedicating her time to bring back the history to her hometown. She recently put up a memory stone in Roanoke so people won't forget what happened there.
For those of you who may not know, back in the eighties a dam broke causing a flood, destroying the area. The memorial stone has the names of the people who used to live there. locals said they're proud of their town and want you to stop by and learn more about the history.
"I started the Roanoke reunion and tried to keep it here. That started me off on the history here and the history of the people. Who was here and what they did. It means that there will be history of Roanoke left for decades which wouldn't be if it wasn't for that stone," said local woman. 
The last Sunday in May at 1:30, residents are going to have a full dedication ceremony at Stonewall Resort.
