The Town of Strasburg is located in north-central Shenandoah County at the northern end of the Shenandoah Valley. It is the largest of the six communities in Shenandoah County and is part of the Davis Magisterial District. The town lies on the North Fork of the Shenandoah River in a small basin formed by the river as it loops through the Valley with one of its major loops creating a peninsula just south of town known as Sandy Hook. Geographically the town is generally surrounded by natural barriers with the Shenandoah River and Three Top Mountain lying to the south and east, and historic Cedar Creek and Little North Mountain lying to the north and west.
We invite you to come and visit Strasburg, a small town with big surprises. There are lots of things to do and see such as the Heirloom Emporium, serving the Civil War re-enactment community, offering 19th Century reproduction goods. The pottery tradition is carried on today by teaching the craft of the potter's wheel and kiln at the famous Strasburg Museum. The Strasburg Museum originally built as a pottery factory in 1891 later became the depot for both the B & O and Southern Railroads. Today it displays the wares of the potters and historic farming, railroad, Indian, Civil War collections and memorabilia of the Valley town's daily life.
