The settled along the Opequan Creek watershed northwest of the present-day city of Winchester. Soon after their arrival, a number of other communities developed regionally, including Fredericktown, present-day Winchester. Winchester was chartered as a town in 1732. It began as a small farming community that developed into a thriving town and important trading center at the junction of several transportation arteries.
