Demographics

 

Windsor, like many other towns in the region, started out as a quiet agriculture community. Those days are in the past – Windsor is still proud to maintain its small town charm, while booming with new growth. More and more people are starting to call Windsor home, because it is a place where people work, learn, and enjoy life within view of the majestic Rocky Mountains. Windsor offers all of the advantages of a large metropolitan area, without the hustle and bustle of big-city life.
