Handley Library

Handley Library located in Winchester, VA, is one of the most beautiful pieces of architecture in the Northern Virginia area.  Judge John Handley of Scranton, Pennsylvania left $250,000 in his will to open a Public Library for the use of the people of the city of Winchester.  The Handley Trustees hired architects J. Stewart Barney and Henry Otis Chapman of New York who designed the building in Beaux-Arts style. The Handley Library opened in 1913. An addition was added to the building in 1979 and a complete renovation, designed by Dennis Kowal Architects, was completed in 2001.
