Victoria Avenue Walking Tour

In accordance with the province’s Stay-at-Home order, several measures are in place to ensure your safety at most businesses and attractions.

Retail locations are those deemed essential and are only able to provide curbside pick-up or delivery. Essential service businesses are permitted up to 50% of their official capacity.

Most attractions are closed due to limited capacity options. Please contact any establishment directly for the status of their service and potential change in hours.

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
