"Bloom where you are planted. That is Windsor Locks which is my strength and life" -Ella T. Grasso

Welcome to the Windsor Locks Historical Society website.  Our mission is to gather, preserve and share all things pertinent to the historic legacy of Windsor Locks.  This website is for you! 

The content contained herein has been gathered from attics and basements, publication, film and photo collections, and in the case of finding a grist mill grinding stone under the porch of a residence on Elm Street!  We are building this website to share all of our collection; and it is indeed, a work in progress.
Our goal has been and will continue to be, highlighting events, changes and developments occurring in Windsor Locks throughout the decades and up to this very day, since its beginnings in 1663 as Pine Meadow, a section of Windsor, Connecticut. 

We are always on the lookout for new information, and we are always striving to organize and share the information we have.  Much progress has been made, but much more needs to be done.  We welcome new members, new ideas, volunteers and talent to help make this the most informative website possible.  So take a tour, and let us know what you think.  You may reach us with comments, suggestions or questions at
