Panoramic map of Windsor, Windsor County, VT, drawn and published by L. R. Burleigh in 1886.

Known as the "birthplace of Vermont", Windsor has the distinction of being the town where the Vermont state constitution was written and signed, acting as capital until 1805 when the capital was officially moved to Montpelier.  First settled by Captain Steele Smith from Farmington, Connecticut, Windsor was chartered as a town in 1761 by New Hampshire Colonial Governor Benning Wentworth. 

The towns' situation along the Connecticut River encouraged trade and made it an ideal location for the states first railroad station, Windsor Station, built in 1847.  The 1847 station is referenced on the map.  Windsor Station was destroyed by fire at the end of the century and rebuilt in 1901.
