The town started as a railway spur on the Dardanelles Pass south of Wenatchee Lake in central Chelan County. Prior to 1908, this Great Northern Railway spur was used for loading wood products and was called Wood Spur. It later was changed to the present name by railway officials. All that remains of Winton are the Longview Fiber Company plant and a few older homes and barns.
