We knew nothing about this site but toured it because we had a 3 site ticket which included it. Small car park, visitor centre hosts a quilt display, which at first we thought was all there was to see. The main venue is the old house which was one of the first in Winchester. the house was called Abrams delight... More

For those who have no time to visit Williamsburg, this was very nice and worthwhile :) The docent was very knowledgeable.

I was running short of time when I visited, so I didn't have the full tour experience. Many thanks to the young lady who understood my time crunch and offered to give me the condensed version. She was so nice to take me through the building, highlighting specific points and answering my questions. I marveled at the artifacts in the... More

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
