“changed hands 70 times during the civil war!”

The Old Court House was built in 1840 to serve the citizens of Winchester and Frederick County. It was constructed on the site of the 1741 courthouse which was the first courthouse beyond the Blue Ridge mountains. During the War Between the States the building served as a hospital and prison. The City of Winchester changed hands over 70 times during the War. The Frederick-Winchester Judicial Center opened in 1984 and all judicial functions moved out of the courthouse. It was used for Frederick County meetings and offices until 1995. In 1996 the Committee appointed by Frederick County strongly recommended placing a Civil War Museum in the courthouse. Frederick County completed extensive renovation of the courthouse in 2003. Leading the project were Reader-Swartz Architects & Lantz Construction, who received an award for the historic renovation. May 24, 2003 the Old Court House Civil War Museum opened with a reenactment of Jackson’s march after 1st Winchester. Today, the Old Court House Civil War Museum houses a nationally recognized collection and provides tours of the building. It is opened year round.
