Welcome to downtown Winchester, Ky.
Downtown Winchester is known for its authentic down-home charm and hospitality. Just 17 miles from Lexington, we're celebrated for our unique local flavors (beer cheese! Ale 8 One!), our super friendly community, and remarkable architecture. The heart of downtown is a multi-block national historic district. It features the "High Side" of Main Street- one of the only elevated sidewalks in the Commonwealth!
Explore our locally owned shops, restaurants and boutiques. Take in a little history at the Bluegrass Heritage Museum or on our cellphone walking tour. Or catch a live show at The Leeds Center for the Arts. There is something for everyone here.
