WINTON-SPRENGEL HOUSE

Home of Louis S. and Mary L. Vanderpool Winton (1884-1022).
Birthplace of their sons Arthur and Howard, World War I army officers.
Louis operated the L.S. Winton General Store with community hall and post office that stood east of this/their home connected by a concrete walk. Louis succeeded his father Theodore S. Winton as postmaster and was Prospect Hill's postmaster until R.F.D. replaced hamlet post offices.

Paul and Lilliam Sprengel and their family came in 1922. They operated a small truck farm selling produce and plants at their roadside stand here and at the West Allis Market. Their son Earl was a World War II fighter pilot who shot down five German Planes.

In 1970 the Sprengel heirs sold their old home and four acres to the city of New Berlin for Historical purposes. This house, which became the Society's home and its carriage house/barn are the original buildings in the Historical Park.
