LEWISTON, a city in section 14 of Utica, incorporated February 23, 1875, and reincorporated on February 19, 1921, "was named in 1873 for S. J. Lewis, an early settler" (Stennett, Place Names of the Chicago and Northwestern Railways, 1908, p. 94). The post office was called New Boston, 1855-72, because postmaster W. H. Dwight was from Boston, Mass., when it was established in Houston County and was transferred to Winona County when the name changed in 1872.
