On the Market: A Schoolhouse Turned Church
12 Cross Street, Winchester
Size: 3,218 square feet
Homes with histories have undeniable character. While this house in Winchester was never a bunker or a water tank, it has served as both a schoolhouse and a church. Built in 1851 as the Washington Schoolhouse, the building was later bought from the town of Winchester in 1920. It was home to the New Hope Baptist Church until 1981, when its current owners revamped the house for a private residence. It’s easy to visualize a morning service in the home with its high ceilings, balcony, and remaining stained glass windows—but the bedroom loft and updated bathrooms prove it’s a one-of-a-kind living space.
