Windsor Locks by Leslie Matthews Stansfield
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Transportation has always played an important role in Windsor Locks, a Connecticut River town in the north central part of the state named for the canal locks built here in 1829. Expansion continued after the arrival of the railroad in the late 1860s; today, the town is an aviation center with an international airport and an important air museum. Windsor Locks explores the one-hundred-fifty-year-old town through vintage images and lively narrative, into which are woven stories of the past drawn from interviews with longtime residents. Interesting historical details include New England's first Christmas tree, created on a local farm when, in the German custom, a Hessian soldier decorated a tree; and the first female governor to be elected in her own right, Ella Grasso, born and raised here.

Author Biography

Leslie Matthews Stansfield worked closely with the Windsor Locks Historical Society to compile Windsor Locks. To illustrate this history, she used nearly two hundred images from the historical society and from private collections. For the stories, she spoke with scores of local people. The result is a stirring tribute to her hometown that will be valued by all generations.
