Abram's Delight Museum [VA]

The Abram's Delight Museum presents an example of life in the lower Shenandoah Valley prior to U.S. independence. The limestone residence known as Abram's Delight was built in 1754, the year in which the French and Indian War was instigated; and the current furnishings reflect the 18th century. The home also served as Winchester, Virginia's first Quaker meeting house. On-site, one can also find mill stones and a log cabin, which is more typical of early settlers' dwellings.

The museum offers period rooms.
