Our conversation for Tourism Tuesday with Justin Kerns from Winchester/Frederick County COnvention & Visitors Bureau featured Tim Youmans, Winchester's City Planner.

Tim recently published a book: Streets and Alleys of Winchester, VA. We talked about the 20+ years of research that went into the book and he told us several stories of how and why certain streets were named in the city. We discussed the history behind a few notable streets changing from Turnpike to Pike to Avenue and learned the origin of Cedar Creek Grade.

You can purchase a copy of the book at Winchester Book Gallery on the Old Town Walking Mall in downtown Winchester or at Winchester Frederick County Historical Society located at 1340 S. Pleasant Valley Road in Winchester.
