Windsor

872 Chatham Street East

Darren from Photo404, pointed out this house to me, that I had never noticed before.

Tucked away on Chatham Street, it stands abandoned and hidden behind an overgrown forest.

One of the most odd features is the original Victorian porch, with the half cut off posts. Odd.

Not much background on this one, it’s listed in the 1923-24 city Directory as being the home of Samuel Katzman. The book “The Jews of Windsor” lists Sam Katzman as being one of trustees of the Ford City Hebrew School, that was founded in 1926.

It’s sad that the historic homes of Windsor that once belonged to prominent citizens are tossed aside so casually.
