While planning a trip to historic Northern Virginia, I discovered this home built by my Quaker ancestors. What a delight! The tour guide was very knowledgeable. Since I live in Oregon this was a special treat to actually see how my Colonial ancestors lived.

The oldest house in Winchester, this place is magnificent. It has a treasure trove of period furnishings and tools. Our docent was very knowledgeable and her enthusiasm showed. It was one of the best old house tours we have done. Be aware that it is not in the old town as one would expect. It was a farmhouse and, at... More

This is one of the earliest homes built in Winchester in colonial times and now maintained as a living museum. Adults and children will find it interesting and informative, providing a glimpse of life among merchants and land owners in colonial America. Conveniently located near Winchester Visitors Center and Shenandoah University.

Great museum! Our guide Helen was so knowledgeable about this beautiful home, the family that lived here, the tools for that time period. It takes approximately 45 minutes for the tour.

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.
