We're making positive things happen in Winsted since 1999!
Friends of Main Street Winsted is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting the historic preservation, beautification, and economic growth of Winsted.
We achieve this by helping to attract new businesses, support existing businesses, and encourage traffic to downtown.
Donations are always welcome!
