A Little About Dayton, Virginia

Dayton, Virginia is a small town located in the middle of the Shenandoah Valley two miles south of Harrisonburg (one hour south of Winchester; 2.5 hours southwest of Washington, DC; one hour northwest of Charlottesville) on Route 42.  Home to about 1500 people, Dayton is served by three family-owned restaurants, two auto-repair establishments, a bank, a convenience store, a print-shop, two museums, one of the world's largest poultry processing plants and a variety of other worthy establishments including the widely popular Dayton Farmers Market.

In addition to the forces of agriculture, which dominate the area, the character of Dayton is shaped by the Old Order Mennonites who farm most of the surrounding land.  The hitching posts around town are not decorations.

Come on over for a visit.
