SCOPE AND CONTENT: The Charles H. Kirkland Collection is primarily a list of historic buildings in Winchester, Virginia with information about the history of the building, location, and occupancy. Also included in the collection is an extract from the will of Joseph Longacre, dated December 1, 1806, with information about the provenance of a number of books in Longacre’s collection. 

BIOGRAPHICAL/HISTORICAL: Charles H. Kirkland was born in Massachusetts in 1914. He later moved to Winchester, Virginia and worked as a land surveyor. Kirkland also served on the City of Winchester’s Board of Architectural Review and in 1966 he created the survey the City’s historic building that forms the bulk of his collection. Kirkland’s interest in the will of Joseph Longacre led him to conclude that some of the books came from the estate of Isaac Zane, a justice of Frederick County and a member of the Virginia House of Burgesses. Moreover, a number of the Zane books came from the library at Westover, the estate of William Byrd III.
