Built - 1971
The town of Winsted is located in the mountains of Litchfield County and is known as "The Gateway to the Berkshire Mountains." It was first settled in 1732 and incorporated in 1771 and is the site of Highland Lake which is the state of Connecticut's largest. The town is now rich in all styles of architectural buildings that survived the Great Flood of 1955 which devastated many souther New England towns after Hurricane Connie and Diane blustered through the area.
Winste's Rotary Bandstand was built in 1971 in the town common for use during the summer for bands and as a reviewing stand for parades as well as for speakers during college commencement ceremonies. The bandstand is roofless with just a large rectangular cement base and encircled by a 3-foot high wrought iron green railing with a large Rotary emblem.
