Visitor Tips and News About The Windsor Ruins
So worth it! On Rodney Road. The GPS said I had arrived at my destination, but you have to keep going. In the middle of nowhere, but there is a sign.[Ricki, 07/05/2013]
We visited the ruins in October of 2011. As previously stated, use a restroom prior to your visit! Slightly hard to find as the area is heavily wooded. Worth a visit if you enjoy history, the sheer size is awe inspiring. There's a lot of trash scattered around; apparently the local kids use this area to drink and do other things... Would be a beautiful place with some landscaping and trash cleanup.[Cassidi McCollum, 01/04/2013]
Great stop, columns and countryside, nice place to bring a lunch to....[Jared, 11/14/2012]
Really one of the coolest places. Most photos do not give a good scale. This place was huge. Be sure to use a bathroom before starting your journey as there are no facilities of any kind. A small placard on the east side of the road was the only indication of the Windsor Ruins.[VGulley, 08/27/2012]
