Present Day Windsor
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.
The Town of Windsor was incorporated on July 1, 1992. The first Windsor Town Council members were Joe Rodota, Julie Adamson, Maureen McDaniel, Allan Rawland, and Barbara Siegler. Mr. Rodota was the first mayor.
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.
The town logo is an ancient oak tree located in the Esposti Park Oak Preserve. What kind of oak is it?
A California Live Oak, Quercus agrifolia
Erected by Town of Windsor.
