New Windsor locals remember Nellie Murray's Ice Cream Shop, the firehouse parties and parades, riding their bikes around Ducktown, and learning to drive a car in the gravel bank or in one of the cemeteries. The Hudson River and Seaman's Beach added not only to the geographic beauty of the land, but also to the amusement of children and adults alike. Students learned about the history of New Windsor in school and took field trips to some of the sites. The National Purple Heart Hall of Honor and Purple Heart, the latter named such in 1932, are colocated with the New Windsor Cantonment State Historic Site. As years went by, changes came to the town. Old businesses closed; new ones opened. Subsequent years and population growth have seen businesses, organizations, churches, and schools dominate this historical community.
