It's downtown in the historic neighborhood - small and well preserved at a busy intersection. Historic downtown Winchester was fun to see. Washington sure got all over the place. Parking is in the street - no problem early in the day.

The place is small, and if you try to read everything (definitely possible, unlike the usual museum experience) you discover that it is in the "George Washington slept here" category, not that he would sleep in his office. That is more of a modern development....More

Not very large so it doesn't take long to tour. The docent gives you an overview then you're on your own. Buy the combo ticket for three museums ($9/$10) for the best value.

George Washington had an office in a small cabin during the construction of Fort Loudoun 1755-1756. Today it has been expanded to include a small entrance room with souvenirs, which leads to the original office. Wall posters tell the story of the area, the French-Indian...More

We like to visit all historical sites, so, of course, this was on our list. Outside, the statue of George Washington is a very nice one. This small three room structure (one room is Entrance and Gift Store), houses some artifacts from the time that...More
