Museum of the Shenandoah Valley

Howard Shockey & Sons is working 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, rentable as a venue for parties, lectures, concerts and weddings. Shockey also restored six acres of garden space.

Currently, as part of Phase II, we are completing site work and construction of The Trails at MSV. Created on the largest green space in the City of Winchester, the project, when finished, will comprise more than three miles of trails for walking, running and biking through fields, woods and wetlands.

Besides a boardwalk through the wetlands, construction also includes a new museum entrance. The Trails will be open to the public year around free of charge.

Shockey recently 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.
