Winston (official name: City of Winston, Salviana) is the capital city of the Dragoonasag state of Salviana. It is the second largest city in the state and the only city in the state that has a bypass (Dragoonasag Interstate Route 292). Winston is also the county seat of Winston County. The city's metropolitan area occupies parts of Winston, Dreutzel[2], and Berks counties.

HistoryEdit

Winston was founded in 1814, before Salviana became a state. It was founded on the bank of the Long River by new settlers who built houses along the river, hoping to live in peace with the native Parkufos who lived there. In 1815, the settlers met in a cabin for a meeting. In the meeting, the people, who are considered today to be Winston's founders, decided on a type of government for their new settlement. On January 3, 1816, a man named Frouth Lawrence marked the spot where Winston's Town Hall would be. The first Town Hall was built in 1816 and 1817. Two years later, in 1820, Winston was incorporated as a town. In 1821, when Salviana became a state, Winston expressed interest in being the capital city of the new state. The city's residents were disappointed when Salviana City (now Salviana, Penoshia) was chosen as the capital. The city's people were disappointed again after Penoshia seceded from Salviana in 1847, and a new capital for Salviana had to be found. Longstown was chosen as the state capital, and Winston had to wait eight more years before they finally became the state's capital in 1855.

After Winston became Salviana's capital in 1855, an architect and a planner were hired to decide on a look for the new State House and its location. On June 4, 1855, architect Dean Monz, who designed one of Almina's old State Houses, presented the design for Salviana's new State House. On August 13, 1855, a location for the House was chosen. Planners chose "Constitution Hill" as the location of the new State House. The House was completed in 1856. The city would see four more State Houses (the one today is the fifth State House; for the history of the State House, see Salviana State House.)
