History of the Old Windsor Mill
The Windsor Mill, originally built in 1899,
was the epicenter of Windsor the greater part of the 20th century. As a flour and feed mill, it served as a landmark for the community, as well as a fine architectural
representation of the progression from wooden mill structures to brick, tile, and steel materials in the field of agriculture. In 2008, the mill was hit by a tornado
that devastated the third and fourth floors, but despite the disaster, still stood tall. Nine years later, a new vision
of a gathering spot for Windsor was coming to fruition. Complete with a brewery, restaurant space and a tavern, the project promised a revitalization of downtown Windsor. In August 2017, just months away from completion, the mill would be destroyed again - this time by a fire that burned it to the ground. The garden-level basement, where Windsor Mill Tavern is located, is one of the only spaces that survived the devastating fire, and it stands as a remnant of the history of the old beloved mill. font for titles, paragraphs & more.
