Founded in 1780, Harrisonburg, Virginia rests beautifully within the historic Shenandoah Valley. The Valley stretches 200 miles from Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, to Roanoke and Salem, Virginia. Bordered by the east by the Skyline Drive and the Blue Ridge Parkway and to the west by the Alleghany Mountains, the Shenandoah Valley's roads are scenic and filled with natural wonders. The Interstate 81 and U.S. Route 11 extend through three corridors: Northern, Central, and Southern Shenandoah Valley.
Known as the "Daughter of the Stars", the Shenandoah Valley is a diverse and unique region that garners national and international attention.
