About WinthropWinthrop manages to recapture the spirit of the Old West with a colorful main street that has rows of false-fronted buildings, wooden sidewalks and old-fashioned streetlights. It's all reminiscent of the 1890s, when a mining boom brought many new settlers to the area. Poet and author Owen Wister lived in Winthrop in the early 1900s and described some of the town's sites and citizens in his novel “The Virginian.”
