Welcome to the Town of Winchester and City of Winsted, Connecticut. We are a picturesque community that provides the best of both worlds at the foothills of the Berkshires. We have a downtown that beckons shopping and dining, all available through a leisurely walk. We are home to Highland Lake, one of the largest lakes in Connecticut, and a great summer respite. With walking paths and woodlands, Winsted is a great area for outdoor family activities such as hiking and biking, and for the winter, it is close to major ski areas. We are very business friendly with full service water and sewer and numerous ways to assist your business in order for it to grow and prosper. We are served by Connecticut Rt 8, which is a direct connection to the rest of Connecticut and beyond. We are far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the city for you to enjoy the peacefulness of our small community, but close enough to all of life's modern conveniences. My staff and I look forward to meeting you and answering any questions you may have about our city. Please feel free to contact me any time. Come see what we have to offer.
