About East Windsor, Connecticut
East Windsor was originally settled by farmers in the 17th Century. They were drawn by the even topography and fertile soils of the Connecticut River Valley. Even today, farming makes up a significant part of our economy. In fact, the character of East Windsor is derived from the agricultural land and open space which lends our town its rural charm. We are comprised of five villages, Broad Brook, Melrose, Scantic, Warehouse Point and Windsorville. While combined for government and education convenience, each village is able to retain its own unique identity in East Windsor.
With a population approaching 10,000, and a land area of 26.3 square miles, East Windsor also offers ample opportunity for business and industry to grow. Situated on the east side of the Connecticut River, our town lies nearly equidistant between Hartford, Connecticut and Springfield, Massachusetts. We are located minutes from Bradley International Airport on Route 5 with fast and easy access to and from I-91. A recently updated plan of development and sewer expansion provides us with both a blueprint for balanced growth and the ability to sustain a favorable tax rate.
East Windsor’s strategic location combined with its rural atmosphere makes it an ideal place to live, work and play.
