Windsor has much in common with Bridgewater on the South Shore in that both are historic towns that have evolved into regional service centers. One marker of Windsor’s history is King’s-Edgehill School. Founded in 1788, it is the oldest independent school in the British Commonwealth. The countryside around Windsor is pretty, particularly in autumn, and Haligonians often make the 66-km (41-mile) drive to the "Gateway of the Annapolis Valley" for its Pumpkin Festival.
