If you missed touring the infamous Low Martin Mansion during Art In The Park weekend, then here’s your chance to peek inside while being taken on a guided tour, while enjoying appetizers and refreshments, courtesy of Bacchus Ristorante.

“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 house also served as the childhood home of Paul Martin Jr. 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 visted 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

Come see the beautiful restoration work Bettermade Cabinets Inc. put into the mansion, while enjoying tours, amazing appetizers, and hearing the stories about this historic home.

Doors open at 6:30pm and the tour begins at 7:00pm.
