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.

Ely-Winton Historical Society
1900 E Camp Street
Ely, MN 55731
Phone: (218) 365-3226

The Ely-Winton Historical Society is located within the Vermilion Community College in Ely, Minnesota. It has been in operation since 1962 and moved to a museum especially designed for them in 1982. The purpose of the Society is to collect and preserve items from the history of the region and then to enlighten visitors through displays and programs. The museum walks the visitor through the history of the area beginning with the prehistoric peoples who populated places along lakes and rivers. Their Native American display exhibits beautiful examples of beadwork and basketry. As logging and iron ore mining were two major industries during the first half of the 20th Century, extensive displays of both are on view. Other areas of interest are Immigration, Medicine, and the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.
