Old Southwest Named A Top Neighborhood Print
For the second year in a row, a Roanoke neighborhood has won recognition from This Old House magazine. The magazine named Old Southwest as one of its "Best Old House Neighborhoods" of 2012. An adjacent neighborhood, Mountain View, won the honor last year.

The magazine listed Old Southwest as "among the best" for bargains, Victorians, fixer-uppers, first-time buyers, "walkability", parks, recreation and lots to do. The magazine cited the neighborhood in large part for its appeal "to newcomers who appreciate well-crafted houses with expansive porches and classic columns." Old Southwest also won recognition in 2010 as Neighborhoods USA's "National Neighborhood of the Year."
