Shawnee Springs Preserve
Shawnee Springs Preserve is a 14-acre natural area that was donated to the City of Winchester Department by the Thomas Scully family. Shawnee Springs is the site of the largest field hospital during the Civil War and its overall history chronicles the development of Winchester. The landscape is also as diverse as its history, containing forested uplands, once-quarried limestone outcroppings, alluvial floodplains, and open fields, along with wetlands and a number of springs.
The Preserve is adjacent to the Phase I section of the Town Run Linear Park. It contains Approximately 1,200 feet of walking trails, and a series of bridges are in place to access the living history demonstration area and a remnant section of the field hospital. The living history demonstration area is 90% ADA compliant and is part of the Virginia Civil War Trails network. The remainder of the property is undeveloped and accessed by walking trails for the sole purpose of natural and historic interpretation and passive recreation.
