It was very small. I wasn't aware of the time it opened and showed up early and the staff was very rude. Not worth the time.

Washington started off as a surveyor. Surveying was an important step in settling America and historically significant. If you are in town for more than two days, then add this to your list. For as small as it is, the admission fee is a little steep. Some in our group chose to walk on. The small garden is attractive.

Imagine being in George Washinton's actual surveying office! It's easily accessible on a downtown Winchester corner, with Washington's actual artifacts in it! Worth stopping to see, as he surveyed most of downtown Winchester.

Washington's office is an interesting and worthwhile piece of George Washington's early career. We enjoyed the opportunity to visit a location which Washington used during the French & Indian War. The gentleman who was the volunteer guide was very entertaining and he provided stories of Washington's activities in the region, as well as some of the Civil War history of... More

As others have said- the building is two rooms. The coolest part was the narrow little doorway between the rooms. The docent brought us in to a light-up map of the area, talked to us for less than a minute and then literally said "ok, push the buttons" and left us alone. The history was interesting, I would have liked... More

Was driving around and almost missed it sitting on the corner of Cork St. Although it is small, if you're a French & Indian War enthusiast, it is interesting to see where George spent his time while they were constructing Fort Loudon.

This is literally two rooms. If you love history and love the details of it, you will enjoy this. Think of the admission as a worthy donation. Small children may get bored very quickly. We enjoyed the short time we were there, but if you're looking for excitement, this isn't it....
