At the center of the Town of Winchester, the City of Winsted is nestled in the beautiful rolling foothills of the nation’s most affluent state, Connecticut.

A quintessential New England village: warm, inviting, friendly. A place to explore and enjoy.

Winsted embodies the natural beauty of New England: the richness of the Litchfield Hills, the tumbling waters of the Mad River along Main Street, and the trout and bass-filled Highland Lake merely 3 blocks from downtown.  Visitors and residents alike are drawn to the diverse offering of restaurants, stores, antique shops, entertainment venues, museums and historic attractions. Equally inviting are the four-season sports and recreational opportunities.

Winsted Beckons Customers.

Natural beauty and historic New England charm, landmark buildings, broad sidewalks, and garden sanctuaries encourage a leisurely visit and shopping excursion. Winsted is a regional hub for retail, commerce and industry for Northwestern Connecticut. The labor pool reflects an ideal mix of educational levels; skills, experience and availability.

Winsted fits the needs of most commercial ventures, deserving a place on your “short list” when it comes to establishing, relocating or expanding your business.
