Town of Windsor

Chamber of Commerce School District Demographics
In 1992 Windsor became Sonoma County's newest incorporated Town, but our roots go back into the last century. In 1855, Windsor emerged as an agriculture town, with the rolling hills and plains reminding an early settler, Hiram Lewis, of the English countryside surrounding Windsor Castle; hence the name.

While still an emerging new town, where neighborhood pride of ownership prevails, we also proudly preserve our historic heritage. Our small town feel is complemented by: modern shopping centers; youth, senior and community centers; and convenient health care centers and schools.

Oak-covered hills and valleys, fields of vineyards, soaring hot air balloons and distant plumes of the geysers welcome visitors, residents and businesses to Windsor's countrified lifestyle. Sonoma County's fourth largest town, Windsor has a population of approximately 20,000.

Many Windsor residents work within town limits or commute a short distance to work. This close proximity to work and home, complete with shopping conveniences weaves a desirable quality of life into our community.
