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

Brian

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.

Outside of the 1-2 months early in the Fall semester, it's really the best location on campus and not even close.

Some are ok.

Hanson facing I-81 sucked donkey balls.

Try sleeping with the window open to fight the heat, but dealing with the truck noise (those SOBs used to blast their horns coming through campus)....I didn't sleep until November. I blame my ****** 1st semester GPA on being a zombie.

Tell those whippersnappers to get a box fan and suck it up.

Also have fond memories of having windows in the suite open during a blizzard and it was still really hot in there.

Great times, The Village has no peers at James Madison.

I was in White Hall at the top of the village, and we had lucked out with our windows facing the courtyard.

Eagle Hall is a peer, but albeit a different experience, and one that I will never forget nor would I trade! Some of the nastiest elevators and bathrooms on the weekend, those cleaning crews were saints, and it was ALWAYS hot!

That building is a dump and always was. A friend of mine's daughter stayed there a couple years ago and we went in. I can't imagine how students can be students and live in there.

Back in late 70's-early 80's the College Farm was a great hangout; w/ lots of social events, parties, mixers, & the like. The school even bused us out there. Great venue & good times.

Did the MRD's ever have the season-end party at the farm? My memory is a little foggy on that...and it ain't just because it's been >25 years ago 04-cheers

That was a crazy good time, wherever that was...

My freshman year, the bathrooms would get so nasty after the weekends that the housekeepers were a sight for sore eyes.
