The Sarah Zane Building is named after one of Winchester’s earliest benefactors. In 1821, Zane donated $1000 for the city to purchase its first fire engine. From 1879 to 1936, the city operated a fire station, named after Zane, out of a building on this very site. Today, the Sarah Zane Building offers the finest in modern amenities and high-design details, while honoring those important early achievements in our beautiful, historic city.

Ready to escape to the outdoors? No problem! Winchester is located on the northern end of the Shenandoah Valley, just an hour-and-a-half from the Nation’s Capital, surrounded by lovely mountains, hiking trails, fishing and so much more. Spend the morning hiking in Shenandoah National Park, picking apples at our famous orchards, or kayaking around Lake Frederick.

The Friends of Hopewell Monthly Meeting and the people of Winchester have reason to remember with gratitude Sarah Zane of Philadelphia, a frequent visitor to Winchester before the death of her brother, General Isaac Zane Jr. After his decease in 1795 she for a time resided in Winchester, engaged in settling his estate.
A gift of $1000 from Ms. Sarah Zane to the citizens of Winchester was the start of the Sarah Zane Fire Company. The gift to purchase a fire engine and hose to be kept in best repair were with her affection and gratitude.
