Windham was part of Londonderry until after 1792 and was "duly organized" in 1796. The first settler of what was to become the village was Benjamin Pierce circa 1783. Pierce was from Westmoreland, New Hampshire.[3]

Being a such a small and dispersed mountain village, relatively few men from Windham served with the Union Army during the Civil War. Windham County itself contributed heavily to manning the 4th Vermont Infantry and most of the village's sons joined either Company C or K of that regiment. The 4th regiment saw heavy combat throughout the war.[4] One of Windham's soldiers, Captain Charles G. Gould of Company H, 5th Vermont Infantry, won the Medal of Honor for bravery under fire.
