Low Martin Mansion House Tours

June 1 @ 10:00 am - June 2 @ 3:00 pm

Low Martin Mansion Tours

Enjoy house tours of the legendary Low Martin Mansion in the beautiful and historic Walkerville area during Art in the Park weekend on June 1-2, 2019.

“This home was built by the infamous rum-runner Harry Low in 1928. It is a part of Windsors history as a centre for rum-running during the time of Prohibition in the United States (the mansion was once a stopover for the notorious Al Capone and the Purple gang). The house also served as the childhood home of Paul Martin Jr. (Canada‚Äôs 21st Prime Minister) and remained in the possession of the family until 1995. The home is the centre of interest because of it’s history of crime and the many famous people who visited the home during the time that it served as a residence for the Low’s and then the Martin’s. The current owner is still trying to uncover any “secret tunnels” or mysteries that the house may hold. However there is no evidence that seriously suggest the existence of any tunnels.”~www.buildingstories.com

In 2012 it was purchased by local businessman Vern Myslichuk and the process of restoration by his company Bettermade Cabinets, began.

Come see the beautiful restoration work Bettermade Cabinets Inc. did while enjoying tours and stories of this historical home in beautiful Walkerville.
