The History of Windsor CA Real Estate Dates Back More Than 1,000 Years.
The first people who settled near our community included a group of Pomo Indians who settled near our community along the banks of the Russian River at least 1,000 years ago. They lived in houses that overlooked large fishing and hunting territories. They also gathered roots and berries that grew nearby.
The first permanent European settlers established homes in our community in 1851. They included an English settler named Hiram Lewis who named our community after Windsor Castle.
Interest in homes for sale in our area grew after railroad service was established in our area in 1872. More people also moved to our community after the Old Redwood Highway was paved in 1915 near our downtown area.
Modern interest in our community was spurred during World War II when the United States Army Air Force established an air base in our area. This interest has been refueled in recent years by vacationers who value our community's location near many of Sonoma County's most popular vineyards and historic landmarks.
Our community now offers home buyers a friendly atmosphere, low crime rates and reasonable living costs. These valuable benefits make homes for sale in Windsor CA a wonderful value for families who relocate to Sonoma County.
