• Winona Washburn Taylor

    Winona Washborn Taylor is the daughter of early Loveland settlers, Judge John Washburn and his wife.  In fact, in late 1874 John Washburn officially platted a town site near the present-day Winona Elementary and named the town "Winona" in honor of his daughter.  The settlement was short lived and became part of present day Loveland, but Winona Washburn Taylor's name will be remembered!

    You can read a little about Winona's life in her writing of "Early Recollections".

    Winona Elementary is named after Winona Washburn Taylor. She lived 1855-1945 and is buried in the Lakeside Cemetary.
