Home to the one and only White House Apple Factory, as well as the legendary Snow White Grill (comparable to White Castle), the town usually shuts down pretty early (with stoplights starting to blink at 9 or 10 PM). Late night entertainment includes: bowling, WalMart, IHOP, strolls or burgers downtown or bars. Wide variety of characters, from the aloof county residents to the elite "old families" of the town.
Also a point of reference for surrounding, more rural areas and/or smaller towns such as Gore, Virginia, a popular place for camps and retreats with beautiful countryside and the birthplace of author Willa Cather.
Also affectionately known as: the Chester; Winkyville
*for the historically inclined, Winchester has been an important piece of many of our nation's formative battles and occurrences, especially in the Civil War era!

(once she's home)
