Our History

Winnsboro Center for the Arts is a vibrant cultural center in the heart of the Arts District which hosts a variety of cultural activities from concerts, theater productions, and art exhibits to classes, workshops, and literary events. Activities geared especially for children include music and art lessons and summer camps.

The Center has now been in operation for over 18 years. Originally established by a group of local artists and concerned citizens in 2001 as Trails Country Center for the Arts, the Center’s name was changed to Winnsboro Center for the Arts in 2009 by its Board of Directors. The Center’s location at 200 Market Street was renovated in 2014. Since then, the Center has experienced steady growth. The hiring of a part-time Office Manager and full-time Director has helped to coordinate activities and develop more efficient operational procedures.

A Sunday afternoon classical concert series was added in 2016 in response to requests for more classical programming. The series was well-received and has attracted new visitors to the WCA. The summer drama camp has become a highlight of the children’s programming, and a second drama camp was added in 2017. Current membership is around 200, but with all the activities combined the Center serves more than 500 people on an annual basis.

Winnsboro Center for the Arts is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The breadth of activities offered through the Center is made possible through the generous support of its members, sponsors, and its many dedicated volunteers. The Board of Directors wishes to express its heartfelt appreciation to all of those who provide support.
