Civil War Sesquecentennial Events

In 1864, the Civil War returned to the Shenandoah Valley with a vengeance. From the first major clash at New Market on May 15, to the final dramatic battle at Cedar Creek on October 19, the Shenandoah Valley saw almost constant combat.  But the year also saw a new level of systematic destruction of the agricultural resources of the Valley during the Burning, and increasingly bitter partisan and irregular warfare. The stories of 1864 in the Valley are some of the most famed of the Civil War. In 2014, sites throughout the Shenandoah Valley will commemorate the 150th anniversary of that year with a series of engaging and enlightening programs that will allow you to walk in history’s footsteps, at the actual battlefields and sites where the pivotal events took place.  Make your plans now to be part of this series of events.

Meem’s Bottom Covered Bridge

Tourists from miles around pay a visit to one of the best-known covered bridges in Virginia, a 204-foot single-span Burr arch truss known as Meem's Bottom in Shenandoah County. The bridge site takes its name from the Meem family that owned the Strathmore estate west of the Shenandoah River. This long span over the North Fork of the river carried traffic for more than 80 years before being burned by vandals on Halloween 1976. After salvaging the original timbers, the bridge was reconstructed and eventually under girded with steel beams and concrete piers. Succeeding at least two other bridges, the Meem’s Bottom Bridge was built in 1894 from materials cut and quarried nearby for the massive arch supports and stone abutments, which extended 10 feet below the riverbed. Records show that one bridge was burned in 1862 as Stonewall Jackson went up the valley ahead of Union General John C. Fremont, prior to the battles of Harrisonburg, Cross Keys and Port Republic. Another was washed away in a flood in 1870.

Shenandoah County Historic Courthouse

Constructed in 1795 of native limestone, the Shenandoah County Historic Courthouse is the oldest courthouse west of the Blue Ridge Mountains in continuous use. It saw much activity during the Civil War, with troops from both sides in and around the building and leaving their mark with graffiti on the interior walls.  A Greek Revival addition was built in 1871 that contained a new courtroom and construction in 1886 added clerk's offices in the Victorian style.  The front of the building was altered in 1927 with the addition of columns and a portico. The building's cupola is topped with a weather vane of delicate scrollwork and a figure of uncertain identity even today. The courthouse served as the center of county government until the early 20th century.  Adjacent to the courthouse, the traditional Lawyer's Row remains though the original buildings are used for other purposes. The courthouse now serves as a Visitor Information Center, Historic Courtroom Museum, Shenandoah County Historical Society offices, community use space and for periodic court use.
