The Hunzinger Museum has a collection of items depicting the history
of Roanoke. Opened in 1984, the Hunzinger Museum is located in
the Roanoke Park, fulfilling the dream of brothers, Frank and Sam Hunzinger. Sam Hunzinger had numerous collections, including:
Native American artifacts, butterflies, an extensive stamp collection,
photographs, as well as several other items that he wished to be
preserved. Sam passed away in 1957. Frank then was left
the collections and at his death in 1979, he bequeathed $15,000 to
help establish a museum. Today this museum is open from Memorial
Day to Labor Day weekend and hosts a variety of hobbies and
collections on display.
