Beautiful site. They filmed parts of Ghosts of Mississippi here and Raintree County. It is currently all fenced off so you cant get too close unfortunately. Also beware of red ants crawling around everywhere.

Long windy road to the Windsor Ruins. Well worth it. I love finding ruins.

Entry from the north inaccessible due to water over road (in early April 2019). I rerouted to approach from the south. Multiple brown recreation signs, and entry is clearly marked. You can see the structure from the main road. Marked as a preservation project for stabilization and surrounded by chain link fence, which makes photos a challenge but doable.
