About Historic Windsor

Bertie County has many historic sites, interesting places, beautiful scenes and fun events. We’ve listed a few below. For more information, please visit our Chamber office in the historic Freeman Hotel across the street from Livermon Park.

Windsor is listed in the Civil War Discovery Trail. A marker in the Park at Gray’s Landing commemorates the Skirmish at Windsor when Union gunboats dispatched from Plymouth entered the town in the early hours of January 30, 1864, and faced a small regiment from the 42nd Georgia Calvary. A sturdy Boardwalk along the banks of the Cashie River leads from the Park to the Roanoke-Cashie River Center, which offers many exhibits that interpret the environment of the Albemarle estuary. The River Center provides rental canoes for use on the Cashie as well as pontoon boat rides. Oftentimes, along the boardwalk, you may see a sailboat docked.

The deep waters of the Cashie make Windsor a perfect water destination. Along the boardwalk visitors encounter the reconstructed root cellar uncovered in the 1999 excavation at Eden House which revealed a 17th Century settlement. A small house nearby has replicas of artifacts uncovered in that excavation.
