History:  

WINTON, a city in section 24 of Morse Township (T. 63N, R. 12W), incorporated as a village on July 23, 1901, reincorporated on April 6, 1906, and separated from the township on April 23, 1906; the post office began in 1895; it had a Duluth, Missabe and Iron Range Railroad station, also shown as Winpon. The village was named in honor of William C. Winton, a member of the Knox Lumber Company of Duluth, which did much logging around Ely and Winton. He was superintendent for building the first sawmill at Winton in 1898.
