    Winston Place (Valley Head, Alabama)

    Winston Place is a historic residence in Valley Head, Alabama. William O. Winston, a lawyer from Rogersville, Tennessee, moved to DeKalb County in 1838. Winston would later serve in the Alabama House of Representatives and was a major investor in the Wills Valley Railroad, which would later connect Chattanooga with Birmingham. Soon after arriving in Alabama, Winston built a two-story I-house. In the late 19th century, the exterior was extensively modified with a two-story, wrap-around, Colonial Revival porch and tetrastyle portico. Around 1930, rear outbuildings were connected to the house, giving it an L-shaped plan. The house was listed on the Alabama Register of Landmarks and Heritage in 1976 and the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.

    Winton Place Methodist Episcopal Church

    The Winton Place Methodist Episcopal Church is a historic church building in the Winton Place neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio, United States that was constructed as the home of a congregation of the Methodist Episcopal Church in the late nineteenth century. The congregation grew out of a group that was founded in 1856; although the members erected their first building in 1860, they were not officially organized until 1872. Among the leading members of the congregation was Samuel Hannaford, a prominent Cincinnati architect. When the congregation chose to build a new church building in 1884, Hannaford was chosen as the architect for the project. At this time, Hannaford was near to the peak of his prestige: he had ended a partnership with another architect seven years before, and his reputation was growing with his designs of significant Cincinnati-area buildings such as the Cincinnati Music Hall.

    Winston Scott

    Winston Scott’s journey to the stars as a NASA astronaut is a testament to the power of perseverance and vision. Raised in Miami, Scott’s largely segregated education provided little access to resources, but his own determination combined with the dedication of his teachers set him on an inspiring path of achievement. Recently retired from NASA, Scott’s work in space is now regarded as a case study in leadership and expert communication, qualities most clearly exhibited in the much-publicized manual capture of the Spartan satellite in the 1997 Columbia mission.
