Here Today, Gone Tomorrow – Walker Farms House

Located on Walker Road, just north of Tecumseh Rd., was one of the last traces of the old Walker Road. This old Farmhouse dated to the 1880, and was the residence of the manager of the Walker Farms. A brief history of the Farm can be found here.

A drive by on Friday afternoon, showed the site scraped clean.

The old Victorian farmhouse had been vacant since the last tennant moved out in 1998. The new owners CBS outdoors recently accquired the building along with its neighbour to the south the Teron building, and weren’t keen on the liability of the rodent infested building.

The building on the Windsor Heritage Property Inventory List, a sad loss as more of our history is again tossed aside.
