This is a short summary of the above history. More history is on the page: "The land which is now Winton was owned by the Crocker Huffman Land and Water Company and was known as "Winn Ranch." 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."
