George Washington's Office Museum Nov 12, 2007
George Washington used the log cabin that now forms the center room of this structure as his headquarters from September 1755 to December of 1756. He was then in his erly 20s and a colonel of the Virginia Regiment. During hsi stay in Winchester, Washington superivsed the consruction of nearby Fort Loudon as a frontier defense for the Virginia Colony during the period of the French and Indian War.
The museum has exhibits and displays on Washington's experiences in Winchester (he had also been a surveyor in the region as a teenager and was later a landowner), life on the 18th century colonial frontier, and the development of city of Winchester. A large model of the early town depcits colonial Winchester and the lcoation of Fort Loudon. Many of the colonial structures exist today. A museum docent will be happy to poitn out spots on the modee and there location in presenr-day Winchester.
The museum is open daily from April 1 to October 31. Admission is $5.00.
