Winthrop has recaptured the spirit of the Old West with a colorful main street. Rows of false fronted buildings, wooden sidewalks and old-fashioned street lights are reminiscent of the 1890s, when a mining boom brought many settlers to the area.

Poet and author Owen Wister lived in Winthrop in the early 1900s and described some of the sights and citizens in his novel "The Virginian."

Many historic buildings survive today, including a couple pioneer log cabins, newspaper printing shop, saloons, and hotels.

Winthrop is in Okanogan County and lies on Highway 20, the North Cascades Scenic Highway.

There is also a Winthrop, Maine.
