About WinonaFounded in 1851 by steamboat captain Orin Smith, Winona profited early on from the lumber industry, and by 1900 claimed to have more millionaires per capita than any other place in the country. One surviving legacy of this era is the number of architecturally significant historic buildings and grand old homes.

Winona is within the Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge, an area of 200,000 acres extending for about 300 miles along the Mississippi River from Rock Island, Ill., to Wabasha; for information phone (507) 454-7351.
