Sassy Living Below the Mason-Dixon Line



Glen Burnie!

Happy Labor Day!  I am enjoying an end of summer visit with my family in Winchester.  We toured the recently renovated Glen Burnie House & Gardens adjacent to the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley. On a gorgeous, peaceful day, it is hard to imagine that 150 years ago (plus a few), this was the site where Union and Confederate troops violently clashed.  The area traces its historical roots to George Washington and the early days of our Republic.

The Glen Burnie House sits on land that Winchester founder James Wood surveyed, claimed, and then settled in 1735. The oldest portions of the house were built by Wood’s son, Robert, in 1794 and 1797.  Take a look…
