Walker Farms Manager’s Residence

Going through older photos that I’ve taken over the years, shows how much Windsor’s changed, even in recent times. For example, take the building above at 1767 Walker Road. This building dated to the 1880’s and was built as the residence for the manager of the Walker Farms, which were once located around the area of Tecumseh & Walker roads. This house sat vacant for a number of years, and this property, along with the Teron Building to the south of it were purchased by CBS Outdoors in the early 2000’s. In 2006 the house was demolished, and is today a parking lot.
