Historic Halfway Homestead

BackgroundThe Historic Halfway Homestead

The Historic Halfway Homestead is Windsor’s first historic landmark site. It comprises two historical buildings including the oldest structure in the town: The Halfway House. The Halfway House got its name for being halfway between Greeley and Laporte on the Overland Trail Cutoff Route, and was originally a stagecoach stop, post office and pub.

The other historic building on the site is the Dickey Farmhouse, completed in 1907. The Dickeys were a prominent Windsor family who operated one of the largest farms in the region.

The site is currently under development to become an agricultural heritage site with construction planned for 2023-2024. The Historic Halfway Homestead is currently not open to the public except for special programs and events.
