Windsor was the first English settlement in Connecticut. The confluence of the Connecticut and Farmington rivers had a huge impact on the local industry, and the town became a trade corridor. Except for this, the local members were involved in the paper, wool, and cotton manufacturing. But tobacco farming played the biggest role in the town’s history and industry. Windsor soil happened to be perfect for growing tobacco. The town was even known as “Tobacco Valley”.
Remaining its dense suburban charm, Windsor is one of the best and safest places to live in the state.
