Gore is a small, unincorporated town located in Frederick County, northern Virginia, near the West Virginia border. It's located off the Northwestern Turnpike, or U.S. Route 50, on Gore Road west of the town of Winchester. The community of Gore is nestled in the Back Creek Valley and serves as the western terminus of the Winchester and Western Railroad. Several historic sites are located in Gore. Sunrise House (or Muse House) was originally started as a simple log cabin and later turned into a multi-room farmhouse with several porches. Two other places of interest are the Willa Cather Birthplace (1850) and Willow Shade (Willa Cather House, 1851.) Willa Cather was an American author who wrote about the American frontier. All three places are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Gore is also near The Cove Campground. The Cove is a privately owned, certified tree farm. It covers about 3,000 acres ranging from one to three thousand feet in altitude and has been developed to provide outdoor recreation for the general public.
