Was a nice review of the 1st house built in Winchester. Guides were both knowledgeable of the architecture and furnishings of the house. They knew many things about the original family history, and the total history of the house.

What an interesting house. Many authentic pieces in house because of an inventory when pieces were sold at auction. Well maintained and docent very well informed. It was wonderful the house was able to say in the family for so many generations and so many children had lived in the house. Beautiful back garden with English garden. Large buckeye tree... More

I loved this visit, especially since my family roots are connected to the Hollingsworths who built the home and mill. The docents are full of interesting stories -- be sure to ask about the daughter who may have been a Civil War spy.

This was a delightful place to visit. The tour guide was informative and friendly. The house is well preserved with many neat articles on display. The most interesting by far is the family tree made with hair. The cabin that was brought to the grounds was also one of our favorites. The beauty of the surrounding grounds added to the... More

After our tour of Patsy Cline's house, we decided to tour Abram's Delight. Our tour guide, Mitsy, welcomed us to the home and was extremely imformative. The home has been very well kept and some of the furnishings are originals. It's amazing how people lived before us; even though they were considered wealthy.

This was a very pleasant tour. The tour guide filled us in on some of the origins of some of the common expressions we use these days. The house itself is well preserved and interesting look into what it was like living in a bygone era.

This is nestled right next to part of Shenandoah University in a lovely park setting. A docent gives the tour which is just the right length with just enough information.

I like the Abram's cottage. It was quaint, informative, and just nice. My friend and I had a great time moving from one room to the other.

There's not much here to see. It's a little historical attraction in the middle of the city. The grounds are nice and it's close to the park. The local schools take kids here for field trips to learn area history.

I am sorry I did not get the young lady's name that gave us our tour but I can tell you she is very passionate about her history and is very knowledgeable. I was a nice experience to see the younger generation so passionate about Abram's Delight and the primitive ways of the times! She is truly a great asset... More
