Description“The Birthplace of Vermont,” Windsor is where, after a 6-day convention, the state constitution was adopted July 8, 1777. The general assembly often met in Windsor until 1805, when Montpelier became the permanent capital. The city was a center of invention during the 19th century, spawning such products as firearms, the hydraulic pump, the coffee percolator and the sewing machine.
The 1866 Cornish-Windsor Covered Bridge, one of the longest wooden bridges in the nation, spans the Connecticut River between Windsor and Cornish, N.H.
