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 had been headquarters for the international missionary efforts of the Church of the Brethren. However, the Brethren Center "upper campus only" was sold to Shanghai Yulun Education Group in 2017. It had been listed for sale since 2015. These efforts inspired the international focus of the Peace Corps, whose first director, Sargent Shriver, had roots in the area. The town was considered an escape for the rich, and because of the Sulphur Springs, had a renowned spa by the water.
In the late 1800's, St. Thomas Catholic Church stood at Calvert College. Due to a high level of resentment toward Catholics during the time, the church was wiped from historical records, the church was razed and pieces of the church could be found in town as late as the 2000's. The altar was turned into a workbench and stained glass used for a garage. In the 1930s, then resident Walter Hoke on Springdale Avenue paid local boys to remove headstones of St. Thomas Catholic Church Cemetery. In the 2000's, then owner of 111 Springdale Avenue purchased the cemetery plot from the Roman Catholic Church.
Much of the town was added to the National Register of Historic Places as the New Windsor Historic District in 1997. Avalon, a historic home, was listed in 1987 and the Appler-Englar House in 2001.
New Windsor is located at (39.543451, -77.104065).
