Historic Windsor. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Windsor was first known as Gray's Landing in the early 1700s. Over 250 years of history can be found in its Historic District, including the Bertie County Courthouse, (c.1887) and the Freeman Hotel (c.1840), a Greek Revival building and currently the home to the Windsor-Bertie County Chamber of Commerce. Other sites include St.Thomas Episcopal Church (c.1839), The Gray-Gillam and J.B. Gillam Houses (c.1790), and Windsor Castle (c.1858).
Windsor is listed in the Civil War Discovery Trail. A marker in the Park at Gray's Landing commemorates the Skirmish at Windsor when Union gunboats dispatched from Plymouth entered the town in the early hours of January 30, 1864, and faced a small regiment from the 42nd Georgia Calvary.
A sturdy boardwalk along the banks of the Cashie leads from the Park to the Roanoke/Cashie River Center, which offers many exhibits that interpret the environment of the Albemarle estuary.
