"Winchester is a very pleasant place to stay in, sir."This historic Shenandoah Valley home, known as Glen Burnie, is the homestead of Col. James Wood, who founded Winchester on a portion of his land in 1744. Wood's son, Robert, began the present house in 1794, but the estate was home to the Wood-Glass families from the 1730s to the 1990s.
