Strategically situated at the northern gateway to the legendary Shenandoah Valley, Winchester has played a significant role in both Virginia and American history. During the Civil War the City ofWinchester changed hands 70 times under such famous generals as Stonewall Jackson and Philip Sheridan.

The charred acreage grew crops again, the burned barns were rebuilt, wheat and apples were marketed nationwide, new industries blossomed and the state’s first public education system was established. Today, Winchester boasts a thriving economy and an inspiring historic setting bounded by one of the nation’s most beautiful natural areas.
