In 1910, it was subdivided and sold in two groups - Merced Colony No. 2 and Merced Colony No. 3. The town was laid out in 1911 and called Winfield after the ranch. The railroad asked that the name be changed to Winton because there was already another Winfield on their railroad line. It has been said that the name was for G.E. Winton of Merced. He was the man who surveyed the town."
