Living in East Windsor, Connecticut



opera_house_1936East Windsor, CT 06088 is a dynamic and charming community derived from the agricultural land and open space.

East Windsor was settled in 1768, originally settled by farmers in the 17th century due to the even topography and fertile soils from the Connecticut River valley.  The town is situated on the east side of the Connecticut River.

The town of East Windsor is comprised of five villages:  Broad Brook, Melrose, Scantic, Warehouse Point and Wilsonville.  While combined for government and education convenience, each village is able to retain its own unique identity.  You can enjoy your time strolling through each village as they all have interesting and inviting places to experience. 

Broad Brook Opera House is located in the Broad Brook section of East Windsor.  The Opera House Players were founded in 1968 and are the oldest community theater group in the area.  Its players put on a number of family friendly musicals throughout the year.

The East Windsor Academy Museum is operated by the Historical Society and can be found in the Scantic neighborhood.

The very beautiful Saint John’s Episcopal Church can be found in the Warehouse Point section of East Windsor and is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places.

One thing that is important to be aware of is that East Windsor is very much a car oriented town.  It simply isn’t large or dense enough to support an extensive public transit system.

The rural country land makes East Windsor great for farming and agriculture, but also offers ample opportunity for business and industry to grow.  East Windsor is conveniently located equidistant between Hartford, Connecticut’s capitol city and Springfield, Massachusetts, the gateway to Western MA.  It is also very nearby Bradley International Airport and I-91.

East Windsor continues to be a quiet town, the reason why it’s quieter than most places in America?  The locals say it’s because of fewer neighbors and houses scattered further apart than you might expect. 

If you think trees make good neighbors, East Windsor may be the town for you!
