Winston County Courthouse.

Corinth Baptist Church, Circa 1884.

Houston Jail - Old Houston (Located 3 miles northeast of present site of Houston), was selected county seat of Hancock County in 1850.  In 1858, the name of the county changed to Winston and moved the county seat from Old Houston to the present site of Houston.  Houston remained the county seat until 1884, when it was moved to Double Springs.  The log jail built at Houston still stands as one of the few remaining relics of that period.
