Dayton is a small town with a population of about 1,600, located between Bridgewater and Harrisonburg on Route 42. If you ever want to live “where everyone knows your name,” Dayton is it… in a good way! Local folks head to Dayton for many things: the Dayton Farmers Market, Silver Lake Mill, Thomas House Restaurant, shopping -- The Primrose House and The Cottage are local favorites -- and more. Dayton also hosts many events throughout the year, most notably the Dayton Days Autumn Festival and the spring time Redbud Festival, when the streets of the town are filled with people of all ages and stages, perusing many goods and eating delicious homemade treats.

Because of the small size of Dayton, there are not a lot of home sales occurring, but residential values have held on strong and real estate is modestly priced with a wide variety of home styles to choose from. The most popular neighborhoods in Dayton are Willow West and South Breeze Estates.
