Often referred to as the “Charleston of the Upcountry”, Winnsboro, located in the upper Piedmont region of South Carolina, is the Fairfield County seat. The town was named in honor of the Winn family, whose members fought in the Revolutionary War. During the Revolutionary War, Lord Cornwallis made his headquarters in Winnsboro for four months.
The town abounds with historic and architecturally interesting homes and buildings. Winnsboro’s entire central core is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Sites to see in Winnsboro include the Greek Revival Fairfield County Courthouse, designed by South Carolina’s Robert Mills; the Town Clock, modeled after Independence Hall in Philadelphia, is believed to be the longest continuously running town clock in America to colonial buildings; and the Fairfield County Museum, which houses collections spanning the area’s pre-history through to the early twentieth century. Each year in mid September the town hosts the “Rock around the Clock Festival” with entertainment, food and antique cars.
