Everyone benefits from a prosperous, vibrant downtown. Our community was a much different place when HDR got started than where it is today.  Downtown’s success comes from having an organization lead the charge and having the support and participation of dedicated customers, partners, business owners, and volunteers. 

Together, we keep downtown’s momentum going. Help continue writing downtown’s success story by getting involved in our organization.

Destination Downtown: Historic Graffiti and the Harrisonburg Homes Team

As we know from home renovation shows, old buildings can be full of surprises — both good and bad! Luckily the Harrisonburg Homes Team of Kline May Realty was in for a treat when they renovated their Downtown office space in 2012. As they tore down drywall in the former Wilson Jewelers location, they uncovered a wall full of curious writing and fun illustrations. This artwork turned out to be graffiti that dated back to the 1890s — a piece of Harrisonburg history, perfectly preserved in time.
