Fort Bowman Open House
In honor of Shenandoah County's 250th Anniversary, Strasburg Heritage Association and Belle Grove Plantation will have Fort Bowman/Harmony Hall in Strasburg open for touring on Sunday, August 21, 1-5pm. The property was home of George Bowman and Mary Hite Bowman (daughter of early Valley settler Jost Hite). They were the aunt and uncle of Isaac Hite Jr. who lived at Belle Grove. The c. 1770 home has an interesting history and architecture that merge German and English styles. The home is located on an unimproved road and has limited parking so carpooling is encouraged. Enter at 242 Fort Bowman Road, near the 7-11/Shell Station on Route 11 in Strasburg (near entrance to I-81 North). Fort Bowman is not often open to the public, so don't miss this opportunity, and there is no fee to attened this open house!
