Holton Plaza Ribbon Cutting

Monday, October 16, 2017

Formerly known as SunTrust Plaza, Holton Plaza is a new plaza dedicated to former Gov. Linwood Holton located in downtown Roanoke between Market Square and Elmwood Park. The new plaza’s edges will be pulled back from sidewalks to make room for food carts and food trucks. Larger shade trees will enclose the plaza near main sidewalks. Dogwoods, one of Holton’s favorite trees, and seat walls engraved with notable quotes from Holton’s inaugural address will line the plaza’s perimeter. Trees will surround a central island where plaza visitors will find a pedestal and plaques highlighting milestones in Holton’s life.
