On Feb. 28, James Madison University finalized the purchase of 201 Port Republic Road in Harrisonburg, according to Rockingham County real estate records.
The institution purchased the one and a half story home and 0.24 acres from Anthony Harpine for $245,000.
The home is zoned for single-family residential use, according to the Harrisonburg zoning map, and lies at the intersection of Port Republic Road and Crawford Avenue, across from JMU’s campus.
A use for the building and land has yet to be decided, according to university spokesperson Caitlyn Read.
“We're looking at options and don't yet have a definitive plan for that property,” Read said in a Tuesday email.
