Port Republic Study

Port Republic, ca. 1885

Starting in 1999 and continuing in several subsequent courses including the 2007 "Exploring Local Records" class, JMU students researched the community of Port Republic.  Because of its strategic location near the head of navigation on the Shenandoah River, Port Republic became an important town in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Students used inventories and historic maps to research the community as it existed in the eighteenth century, and plan to publish their findings.
