Rocktown History: Harrisonburg-Rockingham Historical Society Museum

Come discover the people and moments that influenced life in the Shenandoah Valley today. Connect to creativity through local folk art, crafts, and trades. Let the stories of frontier, school, work, war, and play inspire your own journey through time.

The Research Library and Archive collections provide extensive resources for local history and genealogy research. Affiliations with Family Search, Ancestry, and Fold3 allow you to explore your ancestors, even if your roots aren’t Rockingham-rooted.
