The Winship House:
The Historical Winship House, located in the park, dates back to 1919. The city renovated the home in 2013 to restore the rich textures of the wood shingle roof and the natural red brick combined with attractive gable details such as dentils and half-timbering, to create a singularly fine example of a house in the Arts and Crafts Movement. In 1923 Fred E. Winship, president of the Peoples Loan and Investment Company, later called Winship Loan Plan Company, purchased the home.
Parking for the Winship House, at 216 W. Portland, is located in the Japanese Friendship Garden parking lot at 1125 N. 3rd Ave., during regular park hours. There is general and ADA accessible parking in this lot. After parking, visitors should proceed south along the walkway to access the east side entrance of the Winship House.
