Kernstown Random-osity

On Saturday I celebrated Winchester's Civil War Days by attending a lecture in Strasburg and then going to Kernstown to see a living history event at the Battlefield.
The Good: The Pritchard House at Kernstown Battlefield was built in 1854. This treasure has been stabilized and restoration is ongoing. 

The Random: There are various barns and sheds on the property and nearby. 

The Fun: I enjoy seeing folks dressed in period costumes.


  1. Linda, what a delightful step back in time, the home, barn and folks in period dress are wonderful. Thanks for sharing and please stop back again.

  2. Love the dresses and outfits. Wonderful to take a peak into the past like this.
