The Windsor Historical Society is a private, nonprofit organization supported by our members, our endowment, with grant and foundation funding. We have four staff members and a Board of Directors elected each September by our membership. Many dedicated volunteers help maintain our large complex, staff our front desk, give tours, assist in our library, conduct school tours, and deliver off-site classroom programs. We publish a quarterly newsletter and offer public programs at least once a month. Our membership stands at approximately 1,200 individuals.
