From Frederick Neal’s “Township of Sandwich” in 1909:
- Looking from the intersection of Peter street, west to the Detroit River. The two old fashioned dwellings on the right of the picture are said to be much over 100 years old and were silent witnesses of the war of 1812 and the rebellion of 1837-38.
I believe that one of the two houses mentioned in the caption above is still standing at 382 Chippewa.
While horribly maintained over the years, it would appear that this house certainly dates from the early 1800’s and may be one of Windsor’s oldest standing buildings. It is not currently listed on the heritage register.
