Most visitors quickly find the local culture at Mrs. Wick's Pie Shop (it sits just next to Wick's Pie Factory!). Wick's made the Sugar Cream Pie famous and when the state of Indiana named the Sugar Cream as the state pie, it also named Winchester as its pie capital.
An other must-see attraction includes the legendary Winchester Speedway that has been stirring excitement since the early 1900's. All the big names in racing know they better have it on their resumes.
In addition, no one can visit without a trip to Silver Towne, L.P. This amazing attraction appears to be a mansion, but houses showrooms for rare coins, collectibles, and jewelry. It also has its own mint!
