Victoria Avenue Walking Tour

From the outset, Victoria Avenue was intended to be a gracious, residential street. As a result, the earliest houses, built between 1890 and the Stock Market “Crash” of 1929, show diversity of design and, in spite of recent renovations, quality of material and fine workmanship. They were the valued residences of some of the most influential and respected families during this middle period in Windsor’s evolution – doctors, merchants, lawyers, educators, politicians and industrialists whose ideas moulded this municipality.

Many more fine architectural sites may be viewed beyond Elliott Street, as far as Tecumseh Road, where the unique Art Deco-style church of St. Clare of Assisi stands with its matching, angular, buff brick rectory.

Today, Victoria Avenue is beginning to enjoy a modest renaissance due in part to its proximity the City’s core, and growing public appreciation for well-designed, well-built houses on a broad urban thoroughfare.

Address: Victoria Ave. and University Ave., Windsor
