    Woodstock is the county town.  This county is bounded north by the county of Orange, east by Connecticut River, south by Windham County, and west by Rutland and a part of Addison Counties.

    Windsor County is watered by White, Queechy, Black, West, and Williamsí Rivers, and by other excellent mill streams.  The surface of the county is uneven, and in some parts mountainous, but generally it is too elevated to admit of cultivation.  The soil produces fine crops of grain, hay, vegetables, and fruits: the lands are peculiarly adapted for grazing.

    The beautiful Connecticut, which washes its whole eastern boundary, gives to this county large tracts of alluvial meadow land, and affords it a navigable channel to the sea board, for its surplus production and for its wants from abroad.

    The hydraulic power of Windsor County is very large, and its local position is such as to induce men of enterprise and capital to embark in manufacturing operations, which are annually increasing, with fair prospects of success.
