     History
    The windsor Hotel used to be the "hot spot" in Powassan a few years ago, everyone went there to see WWE, when it was still called WWF. I can recall going there myself a few times. during the months theyd hold sales and rummage sales in the building and book event etc. After many years of operation they lost there liqour license which lead to the Demise of the windsor hotel. Living in Powassan you would know a bar without booze isn't worth going to thats the mentality of most people out here so it eventuly found itself renting rooms out to anyone who would pay the rent and soon the owner died and it's been left sitting in the middle of the town. Soon a bunch of bricks fell off the wall at the top of one side and nearly killed one of the old guys that lurk the streets here. it was then gutted im assuming, and all the bricks removed from the outside. I havn't been in since.
