Thank you for the info. Interesting, had never heard of it!!

I'll add that the "farmhouse" on the property is (by design and original construction methods) a building that likely dates to pre-Civil War. It's been in a deteriorating condition for the last 20 years or so, with the university trying to board it up, and vandals breaking in and leaving graffiti inside. It could (with thoughtful restoration) make an ideal retreat for small conferences/think-tank type meetings. The JMU Farm is an idyllic property, and well worth the effort and time to visit it.

If they took the time and money to renovate (instead of tear down and reconstruct) that would be cool. It's a nice little location. One of my best friends got engaged there.

Looks like a new College of Business building for 2020.

Enhancing the current Showker building or a new building in a new location?

Drive down Port Republic Road several miles. The entrance down a small country lane is on the right. It's not well marked, so it's easy to miss the turn. There is a small family cemetery at the turn.

I believe that will be part of the village redo, eventually. Not sure of the current status, but at one time the plan was to put a new parking deck down near where the old baseball field is and replace the old village with a new village. It seems like this would have to be done in phases as they couldn't afford to lose all of the old village dorm beds at once. I agree with others though that replacing the village is probably still a low priority at this point.

The Village should remain untouched or enhanced/improved in my opinion. It's the best place to live as a Freshman @ JMU imo.

Well, I spent two of the best years of my youth there, but I have a feeling most kids would disagree today due to the lack of AC.
