Assumption Mission House
Windsor Community Museum
Shows the rear of the Huron Mission House which was located on the north side of London Street (now University Avenue), just east of the Priest's Walk, a path that ran north-south from Assumption Church down to the river. The Mission House faced the Detroit River. In April 1900, the E. Girardot Wine Company purchased the property. They built a wine cellar building (completed 1902) just behind the Mission House, facing onto London Street. The Mission House was moved a few hundred feet to the southwest. It burned down in 1912. In this photograph, the foundation for the wine cellar is being built; no .tiff file available.
