Welcome to the Winchester Economic Development Commission

Doing Business In Winsted

Our community will certainly please the business person looking for the ideal location from which to do business. The topography of the Litchfield Hills region of Connecticut focuses commerce into thriving centers of opportunity, free from the urban sprawl of many other parts of the state. Likewise, the region's residential communities have developed in circles of significant affluence surrounding our downtown, as families move from urban areas to rediscover the natural rationale for high-quality life in New England.
