Wifee and I visited Stonewall Jackson's HQ and Brian told us about this place. There are a couple of metered parking stalls out front that they cover for free parking when you visit. Becky was helpful in explaining some of the displays.

Interesting facet of George's young life in Virginia as a surveyor and colonel in Virginia militia. Worth the stop and admission.

Interesting information but light on artifacts and anything that would allow you to experience what it was like when Washington used the office. Mostly plaques with re-created pictures. Good for a one time visit.

This is a small, but informative little stop that deals with George Washington's time in Winchester. It's pretty much a log cabin with 3 rooms, one of which is the entry and a small gift shoppette. The docent is very knowledgeable and friendly. There's a...More
