The history of Winooski dates back to 1763, with this area being chartered on June 7, 1763. The grant was to include Burlington and the area known as Colchester. The area north of the Winooski River soon became known as Winooski Falls and with the power supplied by the river this area was responsible for much of the areas industrial growth. By 1866, the Town Clerks office was established in Winooski Village.
The City's focal point became the new Winooski Block, built in 1867, and served as a community center and business block.
In 1921, Winooski Village sought from the Vermont legislature to request a charter change allowing it separate itself from Colchester and become a city. The charter change was approved by the legislature and in the March elections of 1922 on a vote of 176 to 78 Winooski became a city. H. A. Bailey was sworn in as the city's first Mayor of this one square mile area.
