Tearing down walls: A trip through time in one of Harrisonburg’s first “new” public schools

In 1878, the school board decided that Harrisonburg needed a “large and more modern building” due to the “increasing number of scholars.” The old academy was razed and a seven-room brick structure went up in its place. The following year, a new brick schoolhouse opened on South Main Street. Cost: $5,000.
