In the beginning Barbee and Murray Winn had a vision. In the middle of their vacant fields, where crops had been harvested, they viewed a city, not yet developed,where people could live and raise their families; where friendships could grow; where patriotism and civic pride would thrive; where peace and tranquility could be experienced; a city of quality, large enough to be self-sufficient, yet small enough for its residents to shape their destiny. They saw a place where residents could be involved and a place to proudly call home. Through many years of development and nurturing, the efforts of these visionaries have created the unique City you see today.
