Windsor: Celebration highlights historical landmark project
The Friends of Windsor invite the public to attend a celebration of Windsor history and life from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday, July 17, at the East Windsor Chapel on Old Route 9, just east of the intersection with Worthington Road.
The event marks the publication of the Windsor Landmarks Commemorative Map. The festivities will include live music by Windsor musician Ben "Benny Fingers" Kohn, a display of old photographs from the collection of the Windsor Historical Commission, a walking tour of East Windsor landmarks, refreshments, and a raffle of a wooden sofa table handmade by Windsor resident Scott Brockway.
The professionally designed full-color map highlights the locations of 24 historical site markers that were erected last year throughout the town to mark a breadth of historically significant sites where recognizable structures no longer stand.
Site markers for places such as Windsor Cheese Company, Jordan Hotel & Tavern, The Patterson Cider Mill, and Helenscourt offer clues to Windsor's rich past.
The Windsor Landmarks Project has been made possible with grants from the Central Berkshire Fund and Windsor Cultural Council, a local organization supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, as well as donations from individuals.
