Location History

Winchester was originally the land of the Massawomeck and the Manahoac. The Winchester area was a frequent travel corridor for indidgenous tribes, including the Piedmont Siouans, Catawbas, Shawnee, Delaware, Cherokees, Susquehannacks, and the Iroquois. The Iroquios’s Six Nations tribe included the Mohawks, Oneidas, Onondagas, Cayugas, Senecas, and later the Tuscaroras. After a series of skirmishes in the 1700’s, the Iroquois eventually accepted payment from white colonists in exchange for their lands west of the Blue Ridge Mountains, but retained access to the path.

Area records show that the house at 122 West Cork was built in the 1840’s and was originally owned by Oliver M. Brown, who occupied the house along with this wife, children, and two enslaved people. We are hoping to conduct more research in 2022 about the enslaved people who lived in this house. Brown owned three houses along West Cork Street and eventually had seven children. 

 

Preservation for Historic Winchester has shared that this two-story, five-bay single- family dwelling is set on a solid random rubble foundation. The roof is standing-seam metal, and the gabled roof includes a molded cornice, returns, overhanging eaves, and a plain frieze.
