We learned about so many cool things in Harrisonburg and Rockingham County this week, we couldn’t resist this post to spread the word:
Silver Lake Historic District
Sliver Lake Mill in Dayton was added to the Virginia Department of Historic Resources Virginia Landmarks Register in April. According to the Virginia Department of Historic Resources the register is “designed to recognize Virginia’s historic resources and to encourage their continued preservation,” and anyone who has driven or cycled by or stopped in knows this place is worthy of this important designation. You can read more about the Mill’s history and how to visit on the Silver Lake Mill website and read about it’s journey to the register in this Daily News Record article.
May is Officially Bike Month
Last week the Rockingham County Board of Supervisors officially recognized May as Bike Month at the recommendation of the Rockingham County Bicycling Advisory Committee, on which the Alliance’s Kim Sandum serves.

Out of the Ashes
This week the Alliance attended the Spotswood Garden Club’s Marketplace at the Historic Garden Week Tours and were thrilled to be ‘table neighbors’ with Harrisonburg Parks and Recreation and learn about their Urban Wood Program and pollinator friendly efforts. They’ve just released this awesome video about the program – check it out!
