We have visited Winchester many times, but this is the first visit here. Our tour guide Janelle knew the history of the house and family who lived there. Highly recommend for people who enjoy old homes and the history that go with them.

This site could have been more interesting with a more engaged and knowledgeable docent.
The tour was mildly interesting, but the tour guide did not seem to have much independent knowledge of the time or the history. She told a couple of stories that seemed to be part of a script, but she did not seem to be that interested in it.
A better guide, such as the one we had at Stonewall Jackson's Headquarters, might have changed my perspective.

Excellent, passionate tour guide who obviously loves the history and lore of this old estate and of the Winchester area. This old house is a well-preserved gem of a bygone time, with many authentic and original pieces of furniture and household items.

Visited the house and grounds with our toddler. Walking around the grounds is free. To go into the house you pay a small entrance fee. Historical signs are around the grounds to read about the site. It is close to the park and the visitors center is right next door.

Stone structure was part of a large estate of the Hollingsworth family. Beautifully maintained. Period artifacts are displayed. First floor and basement are open to the public. A log cabin was moved to the property. A large pond is at the end of the front yard.

I went to the holiday open house here and it was very beautiful. Each room of the house was decorated by a local garden club. This time entrance to the home is free. The rooms were festooned with natural items true to the time period of the home. Fruits, nuts, pine bows, leaves, pine cones and loads of candles. The log house was also decorated up, and had colonial dressed docents. Cider and cookies were being served inside. This is a really nice experience to see. This is also the oldest home in Winchester. I wanted to take photo's but was told they weren't allowed.

Got this as the 3rd site from a package purchased the previous day.

Fascinating what we learned about furniture and candle making. Docent was very knowledgeable and gave an extensive tour.

Abram's Delight is the oldest house in Winchester and definitely worth a visit. There are regular guided tours of the 3-story house, which are extensive, informative, and fun. I learned a lot about the Hollingsworth family (from the original settler Abraham in 1728 through 5 generations) and the times in which they lived. Lots of period artifacts, pictures, furniture, etc. Purchase tickets and start your tour at the old mill next door, which also houses a small exhibition space, gift shop, and rest rooms.

We had purchased the 3 House Tour package, and this one was the last one we visited. It was hot and muggy, and our feet were really tired from all the walking. They close at 4 pm, and we got here at 3:15, so already there was not that much time. Had it been a self-guided tour, we would have done it, but were just too tired to go through another guided tour.

Therefore, we only toured this house from the outside, but did visit, and spend some time in the Hollingsworth Mill, which is also the Admissions Office, Gift Store, and a small museum. Many exhibits from World War I.

We visited as part of a three package tour, which included Stonewall Jackson Headquarters and George Washington’s Office. There are three buildings on the site—a building that was the grist mill and is now the visitor center for the museum, the house itself and a small log cabin. While the young docent seemed interested in the house and history generally, this just wasn’t the best house tour I’ve been on so I can't bump it to four stars.
