Rockingham County Overview

Rockingham County, Virginia, established in 1778 and named for Charles Watson-Wentworth, 2nd Marquess of Rockingham, and a former Great Britain Prime Minister. The population was 76,314 as of the 2010 census. The county seat is in the independent city of Harrisonburg, and the largest community is Bridgewater. The county has a total area of 849 square miles of land, plus four-square miles of water. It is the third-largest county in Virginia by land area. Large portions of the county fall within the Shenandoah National Park to the east and George Washington National Forest to the west, and therefore are subject to development restrictions because of national protection. The county stretches west to east from the peaks of eastern-most Alleghany mountains to the peaks of the Blue Ridge mountains, encompassing the entire width of the Shenandoah Valley. Rockingham is bisected by another geographic formation, Massanutten Mountain stretching from just east of Harrisonburg, VA to a few miles southwest of Front Royal, VA in Warren County, VA. Massanutten Mountain splits the central Shenandoah Valley as the German River and the North Fork Shenandoah River flow on its western side and the South Fork flows on the eastern. Adjacent counties are: Augusta to the southwest, Albemarle to the southeast, Greene to the southeast, Page to the east, and Shenandoah t the northeast. Two West Virginia counties neighbor to the west and north, Pendleton and Hardy respectively. Of the 22 zips codes used by the county, the most populous is 22801.
