Winchester

Winchester was founded in 1886 in Pleasant Valley in what was then San Diego County. The town was named after the widow of Horace Winchester, Mrs. Amy Winchester.

Winchester, CA, is located in Riverside County in Southern California.

Largely rural for most of its history, and home to agricultural businesses including the Winchester Cheese Company, Winchester experienced rapid growth during the housing construction boom in the early to mid-2000s. However, construction and growth slowed when the housing bubble burst in 2007, resulting in a market correction.

Primarily an agricultural town, Winchester is also home to some small industries. The first manufacturer of musical instruments, Graves and Company, was established in Winchester in the 1830s. The town has also become home to textile mills and woodenware factories.

Winchester is composed of 54.9 square miles and 0.6 square miles of water.   According to the 2000 U.S. Census Bureau, Winchester’s population at the time included 4,144 people, 1,094 families and 1,557 households. The average family size was 3.03 and the average household size was 2.61.

In 2007, it was estimated that Winchester had 1,904 total homes. This included 1,216 single-family houses and 348 multi-unit homes.
