Gratis Bicentennial




June 10th & June 11th


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.
