Roberta celebrated a rich 100 years in 2010. It was established on land gifted for the location of the A&F Railroad in August 1888 by Hirram David McCrary. As a token of appreciation, the permanent name of Roberta was given, replacing the name "New Knoxville." Roberta was the name of McCrary's youngest daughter.
