In the late 1800s American industrialist Hiram Walker was planting roots in the Windsor Essex County that would forever shape the communities throughout the region. At the time, when Walker was establishing his spirited empire, he developed lakefront property and built the now historic Mettawas Hotel. He also built a railway into the city transforming it into an engaging tourist destination. Walker proclaimed the town “away from the madding crowd”. Today Kingsville continues to be known for its mix of a slower pace of life and while retaining its reputation as a dynamic tourist destination.

Historically, Windsor is one of the oldest communities in Canada originally settled in 1749 and is the oldest continually inhabited European founded settlement in Canada west of Montreal. It was first known as La Petite Côte, or “little coast”, with a comparatively shorter shoreline to its sister city Detroit Michigan. As the city grew, several historic townships have now been integrated to become historic neighbourhoods of Windsor including Sandwich, Ford City and Walkerville.

A little bit about Kingsville’s History.

The town, as it is known today, was amalgamated with the township of Gosfield in 1999 and currently holds a growing population of 22,000 residents. The town lies along the northern shore of Lake Erie, west of Leamington and south of Lakeshore. While the terrain is mostly flat, it offers prime growing conditions for both gardeners and farmers. The area has long been known for its favourable and productive soils and early 19th century writers referred to the area as “Canada’s Paradise Garden”.
The community has very much embraced its long history of environmentalism and conservation. Kingsville was home to Jack Miner, one of Canada’s first wildlife conservationists and noted for changing the migratory route of the Canada goose. The Jack Miner Bird Sanctuary, which continues to operate to this day, welcomes thousands of international visitors, both human and bird alike, each year. Kingsville has over 45 hectares of parkland available to visitors and residents and features pristine beaches, playgrounds, picnic areas, walking paths and more. The town also boasts three championship golf courses and a curling club as well as plenty of outdoor space for various sports and recreation. The area features some of the county’s best lakefront views and marinas for avid boaters and water sports enthusiasts.
