William Gray in 1776 set aside 100 acres at Gray's Landing for establishing a town. 18th century travelers would have disembarked from sailing vessels docked at the foot of King Street at the old Gray's Landing site. Visitors to Windsor today, crossing the Cashie River via Highway 17, enter the town at the old Gary's Landing site.

The old Halifax Road from Edenton to Halifax, both leading colonial centers, crossed the Cashie at Gray's Landing, a deep water port. As the town developed, Windsor boasted a Million Dollar Branch of the State Bank and a customs house serving West Indies and coastal water trade.

Later the railroad became the dominant mode of transportation with the depot located west of Gray's Landing.
