Carnegie Library

Built in 1903, and designed by John Scott and Co. of Detroit (the same architects who designed the Boer War Memorial), Windsor had the first Carnegie Library approved in Canada, although delays caused it to be the second one to open…

The building opened October 16, 1903, and was demolished in the early 1970’s following the opening of the new main branch in 1973 (designed by Johnson & McWhinnie).
