HERITAGE

inchester and Frederick County were once Shawnee Indian camping grounds to which Pennsylvania Quakers came to settle in the 1730s. In the 18th and 19th centuries, The Great Valley Road, now known as Route 11, served as a migration trail. Throughout history, the WinchesterFrederick County area has played an important role in the development of our nation. Winchester was the first Englishspeaking town west of the Blue Ridge

Mountains, and Frederick County was the military and political training ground for George Washington. In Winchester, visitors can walk the same streets that George Washington, Patsy Cline, and Stonewall Jackson once walked. See impressive monuments of polar explorer Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd, General Daniel Morgan of Revolutionary War fame, and George Washington, the father of our country. View the amazing architecture of buildings that witnessed some of our nation’s greatest events and leaders.

Six major battles took place in Winchester and Frederick County during the Civil War, and the town changed hands approximately 72 times more than any other town in the country!

A Civil War Orientation Center is located in the Winchester-Frederick County Visitor Center. An interactive kiosk and brief film will introduce you to Civil War sites within the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation National Historic District. 36 Civil War Trail signs, posted throughout the community, interpret troop movements and battles of that stirring time.

Walking Washington’s Winchester tour is available at the Visitors Center and online at visitwinchesterva.com.

handley library The library’s Stewart Bell Jr. Archives Room is an excellent resource for genealogical research.


Stephens City

our COMMUNITIES Winchester

Frederick County

Winchester is the oldest city west of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and it was founded in 1744 by Colonel James Wood of England. The town was originally named Frederick Town after Frederick, father of George III of England. In 1752, the name was changed to Winchester in honor of the ancient English capital.

Millions of Americans can trace their heritage to Frederick County, Virginia! During the 1730’s, it was the destination of early settlers – newly arrived English, Scots, Irish, and German immigrants who came from Pennsylvania in search of inexpensive, fertile farmland.

Old Town Winchester’s two-block pedestrian mall is the first one of its kind in Virginia. In Old Town, visitors can dine alfresco, discover unique shops, see centuries-old architecture, and explore museums. Shenandoah Valley Discovery Museum, George Washington’s Office Museum, Old Court House Civil War Museum, and Stonewall Jackson’s Office Museum are located in Old Town. Winchester is also home to the culturally and academically vibrant Shenandoah University, which annually offers 400 performances, lectures, masterclasses and lifelong learning opportunities. Each year, Winchester hosts its signature event, the Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival. winchesterva.gov

Today, Frederick County offers a wealth of opportunities for genealogists and historians. The Frederick County Clerk’s Records were never lost or burned; they cover 1743 to the present. Frederick County has Civil War battlefields, beautiful public parks, Winchester Speedway, Winchester Regional Airport, and Rock Harbor Golf Course.

Family-owned farm markets, featuring locally grown fruits, vegetables and meats, are plentiful. Frederick County’s stately antebellum courthouse with its huge white pillars is home to the Old Court House Civil War Museum - and 3,000 Civil War artifacts. The statue of a Confederate Soldier, standing guard outside, is the most photographed point-of-interest in the area. frederickcountyva.gov

Stephens City, 5 miles south of Winchester, is the second oldest town in the Shenandoah Valley. During the late 18th and early 19th century, the town was renowned for its production of wagons. Situated as it is on present-day Rt. 11 formerly known as the old Valley Turnpike or the Great Wagon Road - town inhabitants have witnessed the movement of travelers for over 250 years. Attractions in the Stephens City area include Newtown History Center, Rinker Orchards, Sherando Park, Family Drive-In Theatre, Valerie Hill Vineyard & Winery, and The Inn at Vaucluse, a bed and breakfast surrounded by a large limestone spring. stephenscity.vi.virginia.gov

Middletown Located 10 miles south of Winchester, this quaint Frederick County town has hosted travelers for over 200 years. The Wayside Inn, located on Route 11, is reportedly America’s longest running inn. Attractions include Cedar Creek Battlefield, Belle Grove Plantation, Cedar Creek and Belle Grove National Historic Park, Richard’s Fruit Market, and Backroom Brewery. Middletown is also the home of Lord Fairfax Community College. During patriotic holidays and reenactments, the town dresses itself with numerous flags – and is a sight to behold. middletownva.gov
