Windsor Park rests on a section of land once owned by blacksmith and farmer Hezekiah Alexander. Alexander built his family home out of rocks characteristic of Pennsylvania German architecture of the late 1700s, and this sturdy abode still stands today as the oldest remaining residence in Mecklenburg County. The original 300-acre farm now contains over 2,600 homes
in multiple subdivisions in the area known as Windsor Park.
Thanks to the preservation efforts of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Charlotte Museum of History now operates a living history museum at the Hezekiah Alexander House.
Aside from localized block parties and neighborhood sponsored events within the communities of Windsor Park, Darby Acres, Central Park, Robinhood Woods, Markham Village, Windsor Forest and Nettlewood Acres, locals head uptown for annual events such as Shakespeare on the Green and the Novant Health Thanksgiving Parade.
