      Wilson-Winstead-Upchurch House

      This house was built by John Wilson and is on the north side of Broad Street. It is a two-story gabled brick structure of around 1840 [1830]. Edward [Edwin] D. Winstead (1852-1925) and wife Annie M. (1861-1945) owned this home for a number of years and later their son, Colin Neblett Winstead (1885-1956) lived in the home. Source: Milton, North Carolina: Sidelights of History, Charles B. Motley (1976) at 88.

      The following is from An Inventory of Historic Architecture: Caswell County, North Carolina, Ruth Little-Stokes and Tony P. Wrenn (1979) at 222:

      Photo 357. Winstead House, ca. 1830, two-story Flemish bond brick house of restrained transitional Federal-Greek Revival design on the exterior, and delicate, slightly eccentric Classical Revival interior trim, including an open-string, ramped stair and columned mantels that have the stamp of local cabinetmaker Thomas Day [whose shop is across the street]. The impact of the exterior is compromised by the two-story 20th century porch. A free-standing contemporary 1.5-story brick kitchen at the rear retains much original interior trim.

      Another house of great interest was the Winstead home, now owned by Jim Upchurch. That was remarkable for the family who lived there. Colin Winstead, the son, was a character unlike anyone else I ever knew. His favorite entertainment was catching little girls and kissing them. Somewhat less than welcome attention. I can remember on one occasion scratching his face so badly that it bled. He was an idiosyncrasy to be sure. His mother was the gentlest of women, dominated by her business-like husband, and very quiet. They were members of Christ Episcopal Church, and Colin was he usher who took collection. In that Church are several steps leading to the pulpit, and Colin would walk along down the aisle, shaking the collection plate as he went trying to count the money (and there was very little, mostly coins) only to stumble up the steps to give the plate to the minister. That church is now the Milton Woman's Club.

      Winstead Tobacco Factory

      (for larger image, click on photograph)
      _______________

      Edward [Edwin] D. Winstead (1852-1925) owned this Milton tobacco factory. The size of the tobacco factory building gives some indication as to the economic robustness of Milton. Sanborn's 1893 Fire Insurance Map shows this structure and provides: “No Watchman, Heat Steam, Work Rms 1st and 2nd, Storage 3rd and 4th." By 1908 the building was vacant. Winstead is buried in Cedars Cemetery, Milton, North Carolina.

      From The Alamance Gleaner- 22 Oct 1885 (Reprint from Milton Advertiser)

      "Winstead's 'mammoth' tobacco factory is rapidly nearing completion, and they hope to have it ready to put leaf in by the first of next week. Mr. Frank Pugh, of Greensboro, the contractor of the brick work, finished last week. He employed 27 hands and did the work in 31 1/2 days. The building contains 732,000 brick, and Mr. Pugh says the work was done in a shorter time than any other building of its size ever erected in North Carolina. Mr. Pugh is certainly an energetic contractor and thoroughly understands his business."
