Come visit Winslow, which is located on State Route 73 north of Lena.
Winslow is home to Paradise Cove, an artesian water source, found in 1927 when the village dug a new well. Now the excess water flows out of the supply building through pipes into a nearby creek. A man-made waterfall is an often visited site within Paradise Cove. The city uses this as their water source, and the public is welcome to come fill as many containers as they want from the spigot next to the pump house.
