Although the town wasn't incorporated until 1921, its history dates back to the 1830s, when it was dubbed Gary's Mill after an early pioneer. (The name still exists in a two mile stretch of road.) In 1873, the town assumed its current designation from Winfield Scott, a U.S. Army general and Whig Party candidate for president in 1852.

Finding an apartment in Winfield that accepts your pet may not be easy, but it’s very possible. Keep in mind, most of the time you’ll have to pay a premium for bringing your dog along in your new apartment. Some apartments require you to pay monthly pet rent, others will ask for a non-refundable pet fee or a refundable pet deposit.
While landlords and property management companies have varying pet policies, most of them limit the number of dogs you can bring to your apartment and include breed and weight restrictions.
If your pet falls under some of the restrictions outlined in the pet policy, it’s still worth asking the landlord if they can make an exception for your dog. Preparing a pet resume ahead of time could help you build the case for your furry friend. Make sure to include information on behavioral training your dog went through over the years and proof of vaccinations. If you can, include references from your former landlord and/or neighbors.
