University Perimeter Project
Shenandoah began its perimeter improvement project during the summer of 2014 by closing roads that ran through campus and adding new welcome to Winchester signage, a corner garden, orchard, wetland garden, portals around the new main entrance to campus, and a perimeter stone wall.
The project continues as unsightly power lines will soon be buried across the front of campus.
