S17C2 Downtown Rocktown - The Arts to the Ghosts

While Harrisonburg, which was founded as Rocktown in 1778, has a deep, rich, and colorful history, Downtown today is just as interesting as its past! Join these walking tours, rain or shine, to learn about Downtown Rocktown's hidden history, arts and culture, and even our ghosts. We'll take you into our museums, introduce you to our historical characters (including the ones who haven't left yet), show off our architecture, explore our churches, and introduce you to what is making history today. Every week will be a walking tour. Tours will start at 212 S. Main Street in the second floor of the Hardesty Higgins House.

Instructor: Several local experts will lead each tour, including Andrea Dono, the executive director of Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance; Kay Arthur, an authority on downtown churches and architecture; Dale MacAllister, the former director of the Harrisonburg-Rockingham County Historical Society; and Lisa Ha, downtown's ghost tour leader.
