Welcome to the Town of Windsor

Windsor was settled in 1685 by the Acadian French, who built a network of dykes along the rivers. Windsor became a permanent English settlement in 1749. The strategic location prompted the British to build Fort Edward .The Blockhouse is the only structure remaining. Windsor was for many years a bustling sea port and shipbuilding centre. Between 1840 and 1890, shipbuilding was the most prominent factor in the economy of Windsor.
