Winona [1] is a small populated place in Coconino County in the northern part of the U.S. state of Arizona. At one time it was also called Walnut.

History

Winona was once an incorporated village called Walnut Creek, until the 1950s when it became part of Flagstaff. Walnut Creek runs through Winona. It has been a dry creek bed since a dam was built above Walnut Canyon in the 1950s to provide Flagstaff with a reservoir. Before this, the creek ran year round.[]

In popular culture

Winona Bridge, no longer accessible by car

Winona is located along U.S. Route 66 and was made famous in the song "Route 66". It lies about thirteen miles (19 km) east of Flagstaff and is out of sequence with the rest of the cities named in the song because of its near-miss: "Don't forget Winona."

The singer Wynonna Judd adopted her name upon hearing "Winona" in "Route 66."[2]
