Museum of the Shenandoah Valley

Howard Shockey & Sons continues to work with the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley (MSV) to develop its 214-acre campus in four construction phases over 10 years. Phase I of the Master Plan included an extensive two-year restoration and reinterpretation of the Glen Burnie House. The modernization changed the house museum to a small-scale event space for parties, lectures, concerts and weddings. Shockey also restored six acres of garden space.

To fund the $7.2 million project, a grant from the Glass-Glen Burnie Foundation matched every dollar donated.

Shockey also finished a renovation of the main lobby of the museum. In subsequent phases, Shockey will be providing additional restoration and expansion, new construction of more buildings and roads, and construction of an outdoor amphitheater.

As part of Phase II, we most recently completed site work and construction of The Trails at MSV. Created on the largest green space in the City of Winchester, the project comprises more than three miles of trails for walking, running and biking through fields, woods and wetlands. The Trails are now open to the public year-round, free of charge.
