The hunting grounds of the Shenandoah Valley were well known to various tribes of Native Americans for many centuries. The first settlers of European descent came to the area in the early 1700s. None other than George Washington designed an early fortification near here. Fort Laudoun covered one acre in what is today downtown Winchester.
