Very interesting info about the way of life in Essex County, Artifacts from locals, very interesting. Does not take a lot of time. Good for a time filler and really nice things to learn about the area.

9184 Riverside Drive East, Windsor, ON N8S 1E8

Since 1833

Historical Landmark, Lighthouse, Lake, Conical Stone Tower, Wooden, Octagonal Tower, Helicopter Landing Pad & Cylindrical Light Tower

The light is elevated 75 feet above the level of the lake and should be visible 14 miles from all points of approach by water - It projects from the north side of the tower at an elevation of 28 feet above the lake

We were visiting Windsor to see the spectacular fireworks and decided to take a drive up the Riverside Drive. The scenery was very nice and we had a beautiful day. One of several stops was at Pelee Passage Lighthouse. Lovely design, metal riveted design. As you can see from the plaque, this was re-erected from the Passage.

We enjoy visiting Willistead once a year during the holiday season. They offer open houses during that time of year for a nominal fee. Each room in the manor is decorated in a different theme. There are many volunteers who go out of their way to maintain and preserve this historic gem in our city. Even my children enjoy the tradition of visiting with their grandmother and mother, hearing all of the information the volunteers offer (knowledgeable and extremely friends). Thanks.
