Inscription.
East Windsor
Separated from Old Windsor and constituted a township on the “second Thursday of May A.D. 1768”. In this area was the Nortin Society of Old Windsor, organized in May 1752. Ferry service established by John Bissell in 1641 from Windsor to the Quarry Wharf on the east bank of the Connecticut River encouraged permanent settlement on this side in the late 1600’s. River boats brought supplies to the Quarry Wharf and to Warehouse Point for local needs.

Forty-five answered the Lexington Alarm from East Windsor which was a “provision” town for the Revolution.
