The district encompasses 33 contributing buildings and 1 contributing site in the county seat of Winnsboro.

Many residences are typical upcountry frame houses, built in an L-shape with long piazzas running across the front. Notable buildings include the Town Clock, Fairfield County Courthouse, Thespian Hall, Fairfield Country Club, Mt.
