Winterset is the county seat of Madison County and located in the center of the county. It has an industrial park on the east edge of town; south of Highway 92 and east of 10th St. The industrial park is home to a number of prosperous businesses. The Madison County Development Group (formerly known as Winterset Incentive Network or WIN) has supported and developed this park over the past 15 years. There remains only one lot for sale and available to build on. Two substantial manufacturing facilities are currently vacant in the park and available for immediate possession. See buildings and sites tab for more information. There are future expansion plans to extend the industrial park further east.
