Historical Significance Abram's Delight - -

As an early settler, Abraham Hollingsworth traveled the Great Road when it was still an Indian path. He constructed one of the first grist mills in the Valley and his home served as the area's first Quaker meeting house. Constructed of stone in 1754, Abram's Delight is the oldest home in Winchester. A log cabin on the west lawn dates to 1780, and was reconstructed on the site.
