Windsor is a small town located in Hants County, Mainland Nova Scotia at the junction of the Avon and Saint Croix Rivers. The region encompassing present day Windsor was originally part of Pisiguit, a Mi'kmaq term meaning "Junction of Waters". This name referred to the confluence of the Avon and Saint Croix rivers, which flow into the Minas Basin. When the Acadians lived in the area, the town was raided by the New Englanders 1704. The area played a significant role in the Expulsion of the Acadians during the Bay of Fundy Campaign . The town has a claim to being the birth place of hockey and also was the home of Canada's first internationally best-selling author Thomas Chandler Haliburton.
