Visit Winter Place, currently under restoration as a private home, and enjoy a short, historical talk. One of two houses, connected by a long enclosed passageway, will be open for inspection. The other has yet to be structurally stablized and can be seen from the exterior only. The property is not handicapped accessible.
Joseph and Mary Elizabeth Winter began construction of their two houses about 1858. Construction stopped with the Civil War; the parents with deep New York roots and their Montgomery-raised son differed on the Confederacy. The parents spent the war years in Great Britain, and their son fought for the Confederacy. The family did not return to Winter Place until 1871.
Winter descendants owned and occupied the property until the late twentieth century, when the property was sold for restoration. This program is free to the public.
