Farmington River Plaque, 1993

Originally named "Rivulet," the Farmington River was a highway for both Native Americans and Windsor's founders. Windsor was a port-of-entry to America, and the Palisado Green area was a center of commerce. A new bridge at Hartford in 1810 stopped all upriver sailboat traffic. Steamboats traveled north of Hartford from 1825 until shortly after the Civil War. From 1633 to 1850 most travel to Windsor was via ship and stagecoach. Donated by the Windsor Historical Society. 1993.
