Welcome back to Winton, ready to begin the new 20th century? I can't wait to see the technological ideals arising, and to rise. Maybe more trains, and transportation, heck even maybe horses made of gears! It'll help out at the corral that's for sure. We do as the new year begins for us, have a new landmark for our little town.


Welcome back, we see the general store and such at night lit up along Goodwin St.


People gathering at the courthouse for a New Years celebration. Inside a band will be playing, food, and all in the first floor! Square Dancing, and so much more. All is welcomed! Free of charge!


The neighborhoods are quiet, people are gathering at the courthouse, to see the quiet small streets like Broadmoor street here in its fine beauty.


The school is also planting a small community garden, wish them luck in our climate; but it teaches the kids about real outdoorsy skills, and them not stuck inside on their washboards and guitars. This is the future, all of us outside, having a fun time!


Now for the big landmark we were talking about! Which is named the, Alan Coleman Gazebo, after Doctor Alan Coleman, who was the town doctor till 1899 when he died at the age of 74. A great doctor he was, we miss him much in our town.


We'll see you all in 1903.


Hint hint, 1903 is going to be a change for all of us!



Welcome to the town of Winton, Arizona! The county seat of Buchanan County, home of our marshal, a doctor, and even a general store all connected by the Union Pacific! Such a lot of things thanks to our growing town of 893 people! This small town home to our colorful citizens and more is a great adventure as much as riding horse back down the valleys and mountains just east of our little settlement of home. Established in 1865, we welcome you into our little pocket of home, and come by Hickman's Saloon for yourself a drink and a piano show!



We look first at the end of main street, where our little courthouse sits at the corner, home of Judge David Puckett, our judge since 1892, and around it sits little shops and a hotel at the corner of it, a height of building we say, it can't get better then this! I do say, from his time as judge, we seen only 65 hangings of them outlaws!


Oh no! Looks like some of em' horses got our the corral, the men are probably to wasted back at a saloon to give a hoot! Hopefully the corral men and livery stablemen, will take care of them escapees!


Here is the blacksmith and livery building now, now is it me, or is not a good idea to have a old fire casually just lite up in the middle of town?


The railroad stop of the Southern Pacific, one of the most isolated stops of the track. We see a train stop every month or so, and tickets are sold rather quickly if you want to get out of our town, then again who would want to get out of our little patch of heaven?


Now, this is Hickman's and a beaut she is, she is a popular spot for the frontiersmen to stop by, and Mr. Hickman himself enjoys his little place. While there may be a shoot outs occasionally and the marshal comes and puts it down while the law and order, it's usually quiet when one of em' don't occur. Just don't tell the marshal about the sometimes illegal poker games going down, might get a bit nitpick with the bartender and playsmen!


Now, for them children's education, we got ourselves a school house, state of the art I tell you what! Mr. Wilcox is the best teacher in the whole county, and he's the only one as well!


Now to end it all, a picture of a horse stable by the corral for all them horses who like to escape!

Now, we'll see y'all real soon in 1900, to celebrate the beginning of the 20th century!
