Visitor Information

The Winchester-Frederick County Historical Society is a non-profit organization of individuals interested in the preservation and expansion of knowledge about the historical and cultural heritage of the Northern Shenandoah Valley, with geographical focus on the City of Winchester and Frederick County, Virginia.

The Society administers five museums: Abram's Delight, 18th Century Valley Cabin, the Hollingsworth Mill, George Washington's Office, and Stonewall Jackson's Headquarters. The Society has a very active publications committee.

The Society founded and continues to jointly operate the Stewart Bell, Jr. Archives room at the Handley Regional Library. The archives contains tens of thousands of documents on local history, files on homes and buildings in Winchester for architectural research and a vast collection of genealogical material on local as well as national subjects. Highlights of the collection include rare maps, books, manuscripts, and more.
