John W. Winters Sr., Wintershaven’s developer, spent much of his life working to provide housing options in Southeast Raleigh, a predominantly black part of the city. The troubling death of Winters’ daughter - and quarrels over money and property - have recently clouded that proud legacy. The sale of Wintershaven and nearby Winters Square were the result of the Winters family’s deteriorating financial situation and a legal dispute over the Winters’ trusts. Daniel Coleman, a family friend, hopes the new developers will keep a plaque on the property that honors the family.
