John did not realize when he made the reservation for the rv park here in Winchester Va. that we would be sitting in one of the more historical towns of the state. We got a hint of that very quickly when we started collecting the brochures of the area. Winchester was founded in 1752, so its' history goes back to the Colonial era when young George Washington was a surveyor in the town. During the Civil War the town changed hands between the Confederate and the Union armies over 70 times, and even as much as 13 times in one day! Yesterday we visited the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley to learn more of the legendary past of the valley. The museum does a great job, through numerous displays, of showcasing the natural resources of the area as well as the people who have lived here over the centuries. On the museum grounds is the Glen Burnie House, the older sections of which were built in 1793.
