Town of Windsor
The Town of Windsor is a rapidly developing unique community located in the heart of northern Colorado and situated between the mountains and the plains where the open sky meets towering peaks. It is a place rich in opportunity as well as history pre-dating the town’s incorporation in 1890. A world-renowned archaeological site, the Kaplan-Hoover Buffalo Kill Site, is located along Windsor’s towering bluffs giving testament to a native presence as early as 835 B.C. The later presence of native peoples is scantily documented and early settlers make little or no reference to interactions with native tribes.
By the end of the first quarter of the 20th century, German-from-Russia families were operating many of their own farms and Mexican workers replaced them in the fields. The sugar beet industry in Windsor drew to a close in 1966 and subsequent industries, including a Kodak processing plant, continued to employ generations of Windsor residents. Today, Windsor leads the way for northern Colorado in attracting green industry. In addition to wind mill blade production, the area supports ethanol production, a recycling facility, and other green industries.Windsor has experienced unprecedented growth since 2000 and continues to attract families with its small-town charm and quality of life. Windsor has managed to balance its growth while maintaining the small-town feeling its residents are proud to call home.
