The town of Dayton is one of the oldest settled communities in Rockingham County and is the county's second oldest incorporated town, after Bridgewater. The first settler in Dayton was Daniel Harrison (c. 1702-1770), whose family settled along Cooks Creek, north of downtown. Daniel was the eldest son of Isaiah Harrison and second wife Abigail and was born in Oyster Bay, Long Island, NY. Daniel's brother Thomas Harrison founded Harrisonburg several miles to the northeast. They and their three brothers had migrated from New York to Delaware and then to Orange County Virginia before settling in the Shenandoah Valley.
Dayton is nestled in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley, bounded by two magnificent mountain ranges (the Alleghany and the Blue Ridge) and the impressive Shenandoah River. Rockingham County features must-see destinations that boast diverse outdoor recreation, thriving cultural attractions, vibrant and inviting small towns, numerous historical attractions and farm-to-table dining opportunities.
