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

Another home in the package with Jackson's Headquarters and Washingtin's office. All 3 for $10. Interesting tour of a rather large and expensive home for its time. Interesting visit, worth the time if you have it. Many of the furnishings are not original as they were sold off.

I didn't even know about this place until we pulled into the visitor center parking lot. I had no intention of checking it out, but they have a block ticket deal- Abram's Delight, Washington's Office & Stonewall Jackson's headquarters. Abram's Delight was our first stop- and the best! The docent was great- so many interesting things in the house &... More

Abram's Delight, the oldest house in Winchester with lovely furniture and artifacts. The docents are good and make the information so interesting. In addition to the house and a log cabin, there are wonderful old quilts from Winchester on display at the mill, which is also the ticket office.

Stopped at the Winchester Visitor Center next door and they suggested touring this site along with two other's as a package deal. This is the oldest house in Winchester and it's amazing how well it has withstood 200+ years.

My tour guide gave me a very detailed tour, explaining everything about the house, the history of the house, families, and area, and every item in the house! It's quite fascinating if you like history. Do make the time to go visit the wooden cabin out back. I loved discovering a real latch key.

Don't miss this tour! While the name is not as compelling as either Washington or Stonewall Jackson Headquarters, the tour is much better! The house is a real treasure of historical artifacts. The Quaker lifestyle and early frontier experience come alive, especially in the basement kitchen where you see original candle making equipment and kitchen items. Our tour guide Helen... More

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
