New Windsor history:

New Windsor is officially named the Village of Windsor. It was platted in 1857 and founded in 1869. The town was reorganized as the Village of Windsor in 1878 and later, in 1901, it was incorporated. Some say that is was named by William Petrie for Windsor Castle, in England. Petrie was also from Windsor in Scotland. When another Windsor was found in Illinois, the name became New Windsor though the official name was never changed.

A disastrous fire occurred at Christmas 1898 with most of the business area destroyed. The town didnít let that get them down and rebuilt with better, stronger and, importantly, fireproof brick buildings.
