St. Alphonsus Rectory

This one was still standing until the last tunnel plaza expansion. The house was demolished in 1993. It was a very rare (the last one in the city?) local example of French Second Empire Style architecture. They were a dime a dozen when they were first built, but Windsor’s managed to demolish all of theirs. Now if you want to see any Mansard Roofs you need to head either to Detroit or Amherstburg.
