History

New Windsor was laid out in 1797 and originally named Sulphur Springs. It was renamed in the early 19th century, possibly after its English namesake. Since 1942, it has been headquarters for the international missionary efforts of the Church of the Brethren. These efforts inspired the international focus of the Peace Corps, whose first director had roots in the area, Sargent Shriver.[1]

Much of the town was added to the National Register of Historic Places as the New Windsor Historic District in 1997.[2]
