Medary (also Winona Junction) is an unincorporated community located in the town of Medary, La Crosse County, Wisconsin, United States.[1]

History[edit]

Medary was first called Winona Junction, from its location at a rail junction where trains turned for Winona, Minnesota.[2] It was renamed in honor of Samuel Medary, an American politician.[2] A community post office operated under the name Medary in 1895 until 1900.[3]
