Ludwig Hirsch came to Harrisonburg in 1867 to build a life. By the early 1890’s he purchased the property on West Water and German (now Liberty) streets and constructed this building for the booming transportation needs. Horses were feed and hitched while folks did their business at the County seat of Rockingham. Further income was developed with general transfer and hauling. Later his sons adjusted to the advent of the car with various business in the building. The building is constructed with a large front entry and fifteen foot high ceiling on first floor. The hay loft was located in the second floor. Today this former hay loft is repurposed into unique living quarters. The essence of the building remains with exposed brick and vaulted wood ceilings while the functionality for modern living has been well thought out with skylights, dense separation walls, custom doors and you have got to see these appliances. Living at the Livery brings comfort, convenience, community together. Love where you live at Livery Lofts!
