Winnsboro celebrates 20 years as a Main St. town.  Since its designation, Winnsboro’s Main Street Program has been a major factor in the development and preservation of our downtown with over $11 million dollars reinvested in our downtown through public and private funding. 


Winnsboro Texas is a historic town  where the pines meet the oaks filled with beautiful lakes and amazing spring and fall colors.

Winnsboro Texas is a designated cultural arts district and a Main Street Town offering not only art, music and literature  but unique annual events, award winning restaurants and shops in a welcoming community.

In 2018 Winnsboro was inducted into the Hall of Fame for the Best Downtown in the Uppper East Side of Texas County Line Magazine competition.
