Throughout the 1900's, Windsor was primarily agricultural - wine grapes, hops, and prunes were the primary crops. Once US Highway 101 was completed in 1962, the town's population began to grow.

Construction of the Town Green was completed in 2001, but the idea and force behind it began many years ago. The Windsor Town Council had the foresight to create a gathering place for residents...a place that would bring the community together and give it identity.
