Windsor, California Real Estate, Land, History and General Information

Windsor is Sonoma County's youngest and fastest-growing community. Though incorporated as recently as 1992, Windsor's history dates back to the 19th century. It emerged as an agricultural town with rolling hills and plains. Hiram Lewis, an early settler from England, said the land reminded him of the English countryside surrounding Windsor Castle. Hence, the town's name.Windsor California real estate and history information

As surrounding cities grew, the historic agricultural center of Windsor fell into decline. But the new millennium brings a revival of the old downtown featuring new condominiums along with retail shops with upstairs apartments. In the outlying area, hundreds of new single-family homes have been built since the early 1990s. These are typically 3- to 5- bedroom homes on approximately 6,000-square-foot lots.

Windsor's family-oriented neighborhoods have been built around grassy parks with playgrounds and walking paths. A single school district helps promote a sense of unity among residents who consider the town a great place to raise children.

Activities abound for the young and young-at-heart. To name a few, there are water slides, an eight-screen theatre multiplex, golf courses and a bowling alley. Also nearby is Lake Sonoma, many wineries offering tours and tasting, and mountains with peaceful hiking and equestrian trails. Windsor is also the home of the spectacular Sonoma County Hot Air Balloon Festival, which draws a large crowd each year.

Windsor is approximately 10 miles north of Santa Rosa on Highway 101 and 10 miles south of Healdsburg. It is approximately 64 miles north of San Francisco.
