The Village of Gratis will be celebrating it’s Bicentennial on June 11, 2017. The Village of Gratis was originally known as Winchester and on June 11, 1817 was declared a town. However the Postal Service referred to the Village as Gratis as there were too many other places in the state named Winchester. Winchester officially became Gratis on December 23, 1901.
