Surrounded by some of the richest agricultural land in existence, Winters is also uniquely rich in culture, history, family and community.
Winters is a small town located on Putah Creek in the western Sacramento Valley, near the foothills of the Vaca Mountains. In 1875 the town of Winters, named after land holder Theodore Winters, was established when the railroad crossed into Yolo County. By 1876, Winters had become a busy agricultural and commercial center with three trains daily. There were banks, hotels, traveling businessmen and visitors, as well as the merchants and ranchers that comprised the town’s population. Winters was incorporated in 1898 and was named in honor of Theodore Winters, whose ranch provided half of the town’s land. Today, Winters is a stable, picturesque, and vibrant small town, located in the heart of a rich agricultural area and possessing a strong sense of pride and community.
