Winnsboro Historical District
This picture shows a portion of Winnsboro‘s historical district dating from the early 19th century. The Winnsboro Town Clock (at left) and Thespian Hall (at right) are both listed on the National Register of Historic Places. During the Revolutionary War, Winnsboro was a small settlement anchored by the families of John, Richard, and Minor Winn.
Even in these early days of settlement, with a small population and the distractions of war, education was a priority to the people of Winnsboro. By 1780 the town had a prep school for boys and, soon afterward, a boarding school for young ladies. Since schools were rare in the colonial South, students traveled great distances to attend classes offered in Winnsboro.
