Largely rural for most of its history, and home to agricultural businesses including the Winchester Cheese Company, Winchester experienced rapid growth during the housing construction boom in the early to mid-2000s. However, construction and growth slowed when the housing bubble burst in 2007, resulting in a housing market correction.
