A proud history, vibrant lifestyle and a bright future all combine to make picturesque Windsor a magnetic visitor destination and a delightful community in which to live and work.
Located in the heart of Nova Scotia at the eastern gate to the famed Annapolis Valley, Windsor features the benefits of rural living as well as convenient proximity to Metropolitan Halifax.
While quickly gaining renown as "The Birthplace of Hockey", Windsor is also home to historic Fort Edward, the original Sam Slick Days festival, now known as the annual Windsor~West Hants Summer Fest, Howard Dill's Giant Pumpkins, and the internationally-recognized Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia.
Skiing at Martock, golf at the Avon Valley Golf & Country Club, and a host of community events throughout the year add to Windsor's claim that it is perhaps the best place in Nova Scotia in which to live and play!
