1. Centennial Celebration Monument
Inscription. Once known as Corrowaugh and Frog Level, this community was named Windsor Station in 1856. The name Windsor Station was shortened to Windsor when the town was incorporated in 1902. The people listed on this monument are a mere handful of those who considered Windsor their home during its first 100 years of incorporation. Many served on town council (*) or were appointed by town council (#) to serve on the planning commission, board of zoning appeals, or town staff. Special recognition is given to the founding fathers who served on Windsor’s first official council, and those who served as mayor.
