Winters bought of a Mormon a tract of land a mile wide and two miles long and paid for this fifty dollars in cash and a yoke of oxen. With characteristic energy and firm determination he began to improve his property and has added to it as the years have passed, making judicious investments in real estate until now his landed possessions aggregate six thousand acres, all in one farm. The valuable farming property of Hon. Theodore Winters is unsurpassed in point of excellence in the Washoe valley, and its splendid improvements and attractive appearance indicate the life of enterprise and activity which he has led. [A History of the State of Nevada: Its Resources and People by Thomas Wren.] His Gothic style house still captures the attention of anyone travelling from Reno to Carson City. Winters was also known for raising race horses and had the finest stock in the land. Winters, California was named for him. 16 checks. Date: 1890-1895 Reno NV hwac 21355
