  • Very interesting home and log cabin. We visited the Visitor center next door first and there was no waiting for the guide. She was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic.
  • even if this was an old rundown shell. to be able to see the oldest house in Winchester circa 1754 is worth seeing and gets 10 stars from me. we need to restore any and all old buildings. there something about an old building that wow's me. and this one is well loved.
