Incorporated: 1798
Origin: This territory was first granted to James Campbell upon petition to the Masonian Proprietors in 1748. For many years it was known as Campbell's Gore. Residents petitioned the General Assembly for incorporation in 1790, which was not granted. They petitioned for incorporation again in 1798 and requested the town be named Windsor. The town was incorporated as Windsor, probably after Windsor, Connecticut, the hometown of James Campbell. Windsor is the smallest town in New Hampshire south of the White Mountains.
