Texas' best known salute to fall foliage is Winnsboro's
Founded in 1854 as a trade center
at intersection of two main roads, and first known as
Crossroads. Now situated between two major highways (I-20
and I-30). Name changed to honor early settler, John E.
Wynn. Spelling was supposedly changed by a newspaper
editor in the 1870s because of a shortage of
"y's" in his type. Center of scenic area
popular with photographers in any season. Recreational
opportunities on nearby lakes; hunting and camping.
One of Texas' best known salutes to
fall foliage is Winnsboro's Autumn Trails, held every
weekend in Oct. Sightseers from throughout the state
enjoy special mapped routes of East Texas forest land and
a variety of special events.
