Did you know?
The Frederick County Fairgrounds are actually considered in Clear Brook, VA 22624—an unincorporated farming community in northern Frederick County, Virginia. This lies approximately six miles north of the county seat of Winchester. It is the site of the Kenilworth home, once owned by Harry K. Thaw, the old Hopewell Meeting House, Stonewall Elementary School, the Clearbrook Park, and the Frederick County Fairgrounds. It’s in a Panhandle area close to Maryland, and only minutes from West Virginia.
Winchester, Virginia is right next door. Most people refer to these fairgrounds as Winchester Fairgrounds. The town has a lot of fun facts and historical places.
