This is about the use of "Podunk" as a term or name in American geography for other uses see Podunk (disambiguation.

Windsor's name is believed to be named after the city of Windsor England on the Thames River. Windsor (ˈwɪnzə/ /ˈwɪndzə is a suburban town and tourist destination in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead in Berkshire, England. Windsor is believed to be a corruption of the Saxon words 'windlass Oran' meaning a bank of a river with a windlass. The name of Windsor derives from Windlesore, or 'Winding Shores' where boats were pulled by windlass ('windles') up the river. As with all such names that date back many centuries, there are other claims as to the derivation of the name. It has also been thought that the name derived from 'winding' meaning 'meandering' shores. A third school of thought stemmed from the belief that the name derived from 'a sore wind' referring to the wind that blew across the mound upon which Windsor Castle, England was built but this fails on chronological grounds. Windsor Castle, in Windsor in the English county of Berkshire, is the largest inhabited Castle in the world and dating back to the time of

Rows of Tobacco Sheds
Windsor was formerly known for its thriving tobacco farms, some of which still exist today. Tobacco grown here beneath a netting of gauze approximates the humidity and growing conditions of Honduras. Windsor tobacco leaves are highly prized by fine cigar makers, and are used as the cigar's outer wrapping, called Shade Tobacco. Tobacco is an Agricultural product recognized as an addictive drug processed from the fresh Leaves of plants in the genus Nicotiana. Windsor also has broad leaf tobacco fields, but they are not as common as the shade tobacco fields, nor is the broad leaf tobacco as prized as shade tobacco.
34,000 acres (140 km²) in Connecticut are covered by "Windsor Soil," named after the town. 
While much of the Day Hill section of town has been given over to industry, the long red wooden sheds that are used to store and dry the tobacco are still noticeable. A Tobacco Museum containing authentic farming implements and tools can be found at Northwest Park.
