Nestled in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley and surrounded by three mountain ranges, Harrisonburg dates to 1779. Witness to both the Revolutionary and Civil War, historic battlefields and monuments to fallen soldiers lure many to Virginia’s twelfth largest city. The area is agricultural, boasts several colleges and includes a Mennonite population. This tour highlights the Old Town district; a section sandwiched between James Madison University and downtown Harrisonburg and added to the National Registry of Historic Places in 2008. Enjoy older homes filled with antiques, newer ones with bold colors and trendy decor, as well as a boxwood garden.
