We did not go into the building but enjoyed walking the grounds with a grove of very old walnut trees. The pond next to the stone structure is enjoyed by a wide variety of towns people. Log cabin is interesting history too. Next to the visitors center

Visited this property as part of a package deal along with the Stonewall Jackson house and George Washington house. Out of the three, this was definitely the least interesting of the bunch. Aside from being the oldest property in town, the house itself did not contain any fascinating architecture or furniture. The tour guide also answered a lot of our... More

The guide shared with us a wonderful story of the family who lived in the house and adjacent property from the original settlement of Winchester to the early 20th Century, illustrating it with the details of the architecture and artifacts. I learned that the history of the Hollingsworth family is to a great degree the history of Winchester and the... More

If you enjoy historic houses, this is a must-see. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and the house was lovely. I also enjoyed the log cabin across the lawn.

Like so many reviewers, this home belonged to long distant ancestors. We had family in town, so we drove out to Winchester for the day. Our guide closed up the gift shop and took us on an excellent tour of the home. She knew the subject area well, and was able to answer questions we had about the area and... More

I have never been inside but the property is gorgeous and has an extensive garden in the back along with a gazebo. Other than a quick walk around the property there isn't a whole lot there.

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.

Visited Abram's Delight (built in 1754) last week and had a wonderful private tour of the home and grounds. Our host was well informed and passionate about the home, it's history and the history of the area. Nicely furnished with many original pieces that help personalize the tour. Tour included the basement with original kitchen. It is believed that George... More
