The population of Winterhaven is predominantly human, with a scattering of dwarf families, and a handful of other common races, including a couple of elves and a single tiefling. Winterhaven is primarily an agricultural village based on barter and trade, although Lord Padraig keeps a monetary system afloat with his own coin.
Most residents of Winterhaven have never traveled beyond the village vale. The majority of villagers are farmers, though the walled heart of Winterhaven employs various craftspeople as well.
A day or so ride north of town lies the ruins of an ancient keep, though no one has travelled the north road toward it in many years.
