Winchester, Texas is one of those towns you just about have to be going to if you’re going to see it…you’re probably not going through there on your way somewhere else. This small town (named for Winchester, Tennessee) is located east of Smithville on FM 153.
We headed there recently for lunch at Murphy’s Steakhouse but took a drive around town to take some photos. Once this was a bustling community with a courthouse, two jails, two schools, and plenty of business activity; today most of the activity takes place at two eateries: Murphy’s and the Depot.
Here’s a YouTube slide show of our Winchester photos:
