As an early settler, Abraham Hollingsworth traveled the Wilderness Trail when it was still an Indian path. He built one of the first grist mills in the Valley and the Hollingsworth home served as the area's first Quaker meeting house. Constructed of stone in 1754, the home is the oldest in Winchester.

It showcases a wonderful example of early settlement life in the lower Shenandoah Valley. Furnishings include a fine collection of period art and antiques. A restored and furnished log cabin, a symbol of earliest America, completes this historic site.
