Significance: This mid 19th century railroad building with exceptionally rich detail is one of the finest examples of the French Second Empire Style in Windsor. Windsor Center experienced a major residential development in the two decades following 1870. A major factor in this development was the railroad which made traveling easy and efficient. - Historic American Buildings Survey
