A Visit to Glen Burnie

Last month we visited Glen Burnie in Winchester, VA. It's a historic estate next to the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley on Route 50.

According to a sign, Glen Burnie is the homestead site of Col. James Wood, who founded Winchester in 1744. Wood's son, Robert, began the present house in 1794. Later the house was expanded and filled with antiques and artwork. Around it are lovely gardens.
