Frederick County is located at the northern end of the Shenandoah Valley and is a step into fascinating chapters of history. This is the community that shaped a young George Washington, who had his first job, first military post, and first elected office right here. Years later, Winchester and the Shenandoha Valley played a pivotal role in the nation's Civil War. Deemed so strategic to both the Union and Confederacy, Winchester changed hands more than 70 times during the conflict.
A wonderful starting part of those seeking an overview of Winchester's Civil War experience is the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation Museum.
And once dubbed the apple capital of the world, you'll find the apple heritage is still very much a part of the community. A vital marketplace for more than 250 years, Old Town Winchester cherishes its heritage. Visitors are welcomed here with the grace and style typical of Virginia hospitality. Old Town Winchester is located within the heart of a 45-block National Register Historic District and features a quaint pedestrian walking mall.
