Public Tours

Public tours of Willistead Manor are traditionally available throughout the months of July and December each year, typically on Wednesdays and Sundays. Summer is the ideal time to visit Willistead Manor to see the building in its natural beauty, while the December Holiday Tours showcase the manor all decked out in its holiday finest. The 36-room mansion that sits within the 15-acre Willistead Park was built in 1906 and was briefly the home of Edward Chandler Walker and his wife, Mary. Today, this cultural gem in the City of Windsor is the perfect location for tours, weddings, receptions, meetings and special events. Experience Willistead Manor. History never looked so good ...
