Winnsboro, Louisiana is one of the lowest crime rated towns I’ve ever lived in. It is very country and everyone that passes you waves. The best thing about this town to me is the Walmart. It is hands down the best one I have ever been to. The workers are so nice and it is open twenty four hours a day. People travel all over just to come to this Walmart. It is crazy to me how big of an impact one Walmart store can do for a town.

Winnsboro is a small country town. Lots of farm land. The public schools are horrible but there are 2 good private schools. There are lots of churches. There are some fast food places but no good restaruants.
Winnsboro is a small town that is getting bigger and more diverse everyday. It has a wide variety of restaurants and shops along main street. the people are very friendly with a nice southern hospitality.
