Windsor is a city in Southwestern Ontario, about 370km from Toronto. Highway 401 starts at Windsor, passes through Ontario and continues in Quebec as Hwy 20. Windsor is located on the south bank of the Detroit River right across from Detroit.
A French agricultural settlement was established at the site of Windsor in 1749. It is the oldest continually inhabited European-founded settlement in Canada west of Montreal. In 1797, after the American Revolution, the settlement of "Sandwich" was established. It was later renamed Windsor, after the town in Berkshire, England. Windsor was incorporated as a town in 1858 and as a city in 1892.
We visited Windsor in August 2006 as part of our exploring of the western Ontario towns. We rented a cottage in Stoney Point on the shore of Lake St. Clair and drove around from there.
Lanterns we found during these trips are presented in pages: Windsor, Amherstburg, Chatham and (Stoney Point, Tilbury, Leamington, Kingsville) in the "Ontario, West" menu.
