New Papyrus Publishing Company's On-Line Catalog:
Independent City of Harrisonburg

Located in Rockingham County, the town was named for its benefactor, Thomas Harrison, who first gave the land for the town's site. The first community was established in the final phase of the Revolution, in 1780, and Harrisonburg became an incorporated town in 1849. By 1916 the area had increased in population to receive the designation of city. A large annexation of territory from adjoining Rockingham County land in 1982 increased its size to more than seventeen square miles. See Rockingham County for records.
