Winchester Mural Trail

The unexpected and, well, uncommon discovery is pretty common here in the Winchester-Frederick County area, so why should our murals be any different? You’ll discover some unique mural finds like a musical cow, Patsy Cline, and George Washington feeding pizza to a man-eating vine. Go ahead and explore, and let us know if you find any that aren’t on the map!

Painted by local artist Sarah Gallahan, this beautiful mural is especially fitting during the annual Sunflower Festival held at The Homestead Farm at Fruit Hill Orchard. Only accessible during business hours. 2502 N Frederick Pike, Winchester, VA 22603.

The Jordan Springs Hog

Another Sarah Gallahan offering, this gaelic-tattooed hog is representative of the outstanding barbecue that Jordan Springs Market is known for, and the Irish heritage of the owner, Olivia Landry (she was born in County Tipperary, Ireland). The market is open daily, but the mural can be seen any time. 741 Jordan Springs Rd, Stephenson, VA 22656.

The Mexican Village at Manolete’s

This beautiful mural at Manolete’s Taqueria Gourmet is still expanding and surrounds nearly the entire restaurant. It caused quite a stir locally due to some zoning rules, but it all worked out in the end and this beautiful work of art is worth seeing (and the food is excellent here as well!). Mural is visible and accessible any time of the day. 2240 Valley Ave, Winchester, VA 22601

Paintin’ the Town in Old Town

This teen-crafted work along Indian Alley in Old Town Winchester dates back to a 1999 collaboration between the Old Town Development Board and the Frederick County Parks and Recreation Teen Adventure Quest Camp. It features an array of historic buildings in the Winchester-Frederick County area. It is on the south side of the Braddock Auto Park parking garage, immediately adjacent to the Winchester Art Mural project, and is accessible at any time.

Patsy Cline Mural

This mural of Winchester’s hometown gal, Patsy Cline, features two well-known portraits as well as her in the parade during the 1955 Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival. It is tucked on the north side of the Bridgeforth Photographics building on Indian Alley in Old Town Winchester. Since Indian Alley is one-way northbound, you’ll have to look behind you to catch it! Approximate address is 210 S Indian Alley, and it is publicly accessible any time.

SU ESports Building

Okay, so be fair, this is more of a building wrap than a traditional mural, but it looks really cool and is worth checking out! Plus it is just around the corner from the Winchester-Frederick County Visitor Center, so it can be the first stop on your mural trail explorations. The building itself houses the state-of-the-art SU Esports Arena and is home to the nationally recognized ESports program. It is publicly accessible any time. Location is 608 Millwood Ave, Winchester, VA 22601 on the Shenandoah University campus.

The History of the Solenbergers

Yet another Sarah Gallahan mural project, this one tells the family history of the Solenbergers (here’s a story on it in from the local newspaper), and is definitely the largest of our local murals. It spans the entire west-facing wall of the 50,000 sq ft building that houses Solenberger’s True Value Hardware along Baker Ln. Address is 832 Berryville Ave, Winchester, VA 22601, and the mural is accessible any time.

Jazz Walk

This colorful mural adorns a long fence attached to the former Stephen’s Jazz Cafe. The restaurant is located next to the childhood home of noted jazz musician John Kirby. The mural is along the sidewalk and accessible any time. Address is 440 N Kent St, Winchester, VA 22601.

Dancin’ Flowers and Animals at West Oaks

This sprawling, fun and colorful mural, another by local artist Sarah Gallahan, represents the agriculture and music that are the cornerstone of the West Oaks Farm Market experience. This is a 10th generation farm, and their market is open year-round and always seems to be having some sort of music or event, so check them out when you see the mural! They also have a cafe serving breakfast and lunch and a free kids play area, so bring the family with you. Located at 4305 Middle Rd, Winchester, VA 22602. Mural accessible during business hours.

Winchester Art Murals

A collaborative community effort led by the Winchester Art Market (WAM!), this Dennis Wymer creation adorns a building along Indian Alley, just a half a block west of the Old Town Winchester pedestrian mall. Find out more about the story from their Facebook page. It is publicly accessible at any time. Approximate address is 150 N Indian Alley, Winchester, VA 22601.

Winchester Rescue Mission Mural

This mural is very special in our community. Although designed and outlined by local mural artist Sarah Gallahan, over 80 volunteers worked together to add color and bring it to life. The lighthouse and scenes of help represent the services provided by the Winchester Rescue Mission. Learn more about the story in this Winchester Star article. It is publicly accessible at any time, and is located at 435 N Cameron St, Winchester, VA 22601.

George’s Pizza Negotiation (Pizzoco Pizza)

Image by Winchester-Frederick County Tourism Office

This is definitely one of our most fun murals, and it adorns the dining room wall inside the incredibly popular Pizzoco Pizza Parlor located a few blocks north of the Old Town Winchester pedestrian mall. You can see the dome of Handley Library in the background, and a young George Washington (he spent much of his time in Winchester from age 18-28) calming a seemingly man-eating vine with some pizza. Great selfie/Instagram spot while in town! It is only accessible during business hours, and is located at 501 N Loudoun St, Winchester, VA 22601.

A Hoppy Shenandoah (Winchester Brew Works)

Image by Winchester-Frederick County Tourism Office

The dazzling duo of Holly and Bonnie founded and own Winchester Brew Works, and their motto is “Love the Valley, Love the Beer.” So it was just appropriate that they had this large, beautiful mural of a hoppy Shenandoah Valley painted across one of the walls in their tasting room when they opened. This family-friendly brewery is located just steps from the George Washington Hotel and the Old Town Winchester pedestrian Mall. The mural is accessible during business hours only, but it is a great selfie/Instagram spot while in town! The brewery is located at 320 N Cameron St, Winchester, VA 22601.
