We love our downtown and we love the work that Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance has done to make Harrisonburg a vibrant, unique, and developing place. Every year HDR throws a big party (aka Renaissance Night) to raise funds and celebrate downtown. We think this is a great event and we're passionate about supporting the downtown we love - so, this year The Harrisonburg Homes Team is the main sponsor of Renaissance Night. We're going to the event and we think you should too! We'll give you 6 reasons why you should clear your evening on Saturday, May 21st and attend Renaissance Night.
On April 26, 2016, around 100 people gathered on the Court House lawn to witness the unearthing of a 50-year-old piece of history.

The Harrisonburg-Rockingham Chamber of Commerce is celebrating its 100th anniversary on April 26th. To commemorate their century of service to the community, a little piece of history will be revealed on the Court House Lawn at 2:15pm. A time capsule that was buried in 1966 will be dug up and its contents rediscovered. We know that there is a lengthy list of items in the time capsule, but no one knows exactly what's inside... five decades has a way of erasing such memories.
