[thumbup] I'm glad this little bit of local history is being memorialized. The Winfield story touches on so many historical events.

Thank you Mayor Hallisey! A lot of us locals never knew these historical facts about Hobbs Road and the Winfield family.

Great idea!

Mayor Hallisey's efforts are so appreciated! You cannot hide truth forever. As a Winfield descendant, and Alexander Winfield historian, I am so proud.
