Neighbourhoods of Windsor, Exploring Hidden Gems
Over the past century and a quarter several border cities united into one municipality that today we call Windsor Ontario. The remnants of these old towns can be seen in today’s street patterns and unique neighbourhoods throughout Windsor. We will explore four distinct neighbourhoods including Sandwich Street, Victoria Avenue, Devonshire Road and Drouillard Road. Many original homes and commercial buildings still stand along these streets. They remind us of fine building quality and craftmanship of earlier days. Join us as we virtually tour these streets and discuss both the buildings and the valued residents who lived and worked in these distinct and historic districts of the city. Class Size: Max. 95
