The Winship House
The historic Winship House dates to 1919. It gained its name in 1923, when Fred E. Winship, president of the Peoples Loan and Investment Company, purchased the home. Renovated in 2013, it stands as an example of an Arts and Crafts Movement home with its wood shingled roof and natural red brick.
