This house is across from the Winchester Visitors Center. There is a small separate building wih a small museum that sells the tickets. You can purchase a multi-ticket for Abram's Delight, Stonewall Jackson's office, and George Wahingon's office. I left the Abram's house for last. Eventhough it was 30 min til closing, they were nice enough to give the full... More

We purchased the block pass to 3 attractions...Abrams Delight ,Stonewall Jackson Headquarters and Washingtons office. It was interesting to see the progression through time since there are several periods represented in the 3 sites. I also found the guides to be very knowledgable in more then just the major details. A lot of interesting facts about individual pieces and people.... More

In one day we visited Stonewall Jackson's HQ, Washington's office and Abram's Delight. The tour was delightful,and we enjoyed listening the story of every object in the house. My youngest usually gets bored but he said that he enjoyed it a lot. Even it caught my 17yr old daughter's attention. I liked it a lot too because it showcased the... More

My first stop on the triumverate (Abram's Delight, Stonewall Jackson's HQ and Washington's office) was the highlight of the three. The visit round the house and the log cabin was very informative.

We did the multi attraction ticket for Abram's Delight, Stone Wall Jackson's Headquarters and Washington's Office Museum. Abrams Delight is not part of the Old Town like the other two. It is closer a mall, other retail stores and restaurant's. But it was worth going to. The guided tour was very informative and it was very enjoyable if you like... More

This beautiful limestone structure with 18" thick exterior walls has been wonderfully restored. Tickets to go in were sold in another nearby building, so we went to get our tickets. For $9.00 (senior rate as opposed to $10) we gained entrance to 3 buildings, the one mentioned above, Washington’s Office, and Stonewall Jackson’s Headquarters in Winchester. The docent's narrative of... More

I've stopped at this place several times over the last 10 years. The buildings are impeccably restored and the guides are informative. The lake is full of fish and surrounded by trees and next to the campus of Shenandoah University. A new free museum is also next door. This is a great stop for tourist and a nice day out... More

It was raining in sheets but the guide was willing to take me through the house. It is a wonderful stone house with 16-18 in thick exterior walls. There are several stitched samplers that are outstanding examples of needle work at the time they were completed. There are also excellent examples of local and Pennsylvania furniture. Allow more time if... More
