Wintersburg Buildings, Relics Recall Huntington Beach's Past
HUNTINGTON BEACH — For two decades before railroad baron Henry Huntington's name was tagged onto a beachside town, a small farming community called Wintersburg operated 4 miles inland.
Wintersburg was founded in the 1880s by farmer Henry Winters on the northern fringe of what today is the Oak View area. Its residents included pioneers of the region--with such names as Gothard, Nichols and Graham--and a sizable Japanese community.
