When the charming town of Winters was founded in 1875, it claimed a special place in California’s history as the Sacramento Valley’s commercial center for agriculture and passenger rail service. Over the years, Winters has retained its original historic and rural charm, offering visitors a glimpse of the past while enjoying a variety of modern amenities. A walk down the National Historic Main Street is a walk through history, with many architectural treasures now occupied by restaurants, shops and businesses.
