Willistead Manor Tours

COVID-19 Update for Willistead Manor:

Willistead Manor is a beautiful historic property - used by many to host lovely events. The COVID-19 global pandemic has increased the need for enhanced cleaning at all of our facilities, including the Manor. Due to the historical nature of the building, we are unable to provide the level of enhanced cleaning that is required without causing damage to the wood work or furnishings. At this time, Willistead Manor remains closed with an unknown re-opening date.

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 ...
