Here’s another of our periodic looks at communities as seen through my iPhone.
This time: Winchester, Indiana.
The county seat of Randolph County, Winchester has about 5,000 residents. It’s downtown has fared pretty well compared to many Midwestern towns. There’s a restored – and renovated – courthouse (above) and a fairly vital downtown core around the courthouse square.
The courthouse square is decorated, like many others, with memorials to veterans and past wars.
Some of Winchester’s memorials are beautiful.
And dramatic, like this doughboy statue.
There’s some slightly more modern weapons of war on display.
Inside the courthouse, a memorial to famous Randolph County residents. To me, the best known is probably director Robert Wise, who made “West Side Story” and “Star Trek: The Motion Picture.”
So it’s especially nice that downtown Winchester still has a working movie theater.
