Southeast of Harrisonburg is a small town called Keezletown, and Keezletown is a local favorite for scenic drives—winding country roads, cows meandering through pastoral farmland, gorgeous mountain views. Keezletown may be small, but it’s most definitely not short on charm.
This unincorporated community is home to less than 1,000 citizens and various businesses and institutions including, theKeezletown Community Cannery, Redeemer Classical School, a private school, Keezlenutten Farm, various other farms,Packsaddle Ridge golf course, the Old Massanutten Lodge, and a Ruritan Club that makes fantastic Barbeque Chicken. Barbeque Chicken is a bit of a staple here in the Valley, and it’s a cultural tradition I was not at all familiar with when I moved to Harrisonburg in 2005. Now, though, I couldn’t imagine Valley summers without Barbeque Chicken.
Come to the Valley in the summer time, and you’re sure to find Barbeque Chicken advertisements on many Ruritan Club, Fire Department, and Rescue Squad marquees. For those unfamiliar with roadside attraction, chicken is barbequed very early in the morning at places like the Keezletown Ruritan Club. After it’s cooked, volunteers at various locations in Harrisonburg and surrounding areas sell the chicken at places like gas station parking lots and church parking lots. The funds earned from selling chicken benefit a variety of causes from 4-H clubs to Relay For Life teams to fire departments.
