Windsor

664 Victoria Avenue

Located at 664 Victoria, and currently home to the Downtown Windsor Mission, the building was originally home to the Temple Baptist Church.

The building was built in 1925, and designed by the local Windsor architect Douglas C. Winter, who just so happened to be a member of the congregation.

Temple Baptist was closed in 2002, and the congregation merged with that of the Olivet Baptist Church, and high tailed it to the suburbs, where they opened together as Banwell Community Church, right on the border with Tecumseh.

Olivet Baptist was one I had never heard of before… A bit of Googling gave me this church at Logan & Fraser just south east of the Howard/Tecumseh area.

Anyone with any memories of either Temple or Olivet Baptist Churches?
