Windsor, CT Photos

Windsor is Connecticut's first English settlement. It was hastily established in 1633 by the Plymouth, MA colony, when it was learned the Dutch had established a trading fort at what is now Hartford. The English settled Windsor north of Hartford to cut the Dutch ability to trade further up the Connecticut River. Windsor and surrounding communities host an abundance of early American houses in unspoiled settings which make it an ideal area for history tourists.
