If you like museums, then you will love Abram's Delight! This museum starts you off with the rich history of Winchester. Friendly staff, easy to get to, lots of historical facts. Clean bathrooms and a cute little gift shop full of items to purchase. I highly recommend purchasing a block ticket for $10.00. This ticket will get you into all three ( Abram's Delight, George Washington's Office and Stonewall Jackson) museums. It is totally worth!!
This is your typical old house museum tour. Which I really enjoy and try to do wherever I can. Great old house and mill and the staff were really enjoyable. Go!
