History[edit]

Grandin Court was annexed into Roanoke by way of two separate annexations occurring in both 1926 and 1943.[2] Bisected by U.S. Highway 221 (Brambleton Avenue) and bordered by U.S. Highway 11 (Grandin Road) on the north, most of the residential development occurred between 1920 and 1960.[3] Residential development began in the northwest corner of the neighborhood and fanned out from that point, with various style represented, including but not limited to cottage, bungalow and American Foursquare.[2] With the establishment of The Coffee Pot restaurant in 1936, the commercial node of the neighborhood has developed and grown along Brambleton Avenue at the Roanoke County line.[4]

Today, Grandin Court is the location of Fishburn Park, Woodlawn Park, Grandin Court Elementary School, the Roanoke Valley Governor's School for Science and Technology and Patrick Henry High School.
