Shand House – Open House @ Shand House
Aug 3 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Please join us for a Special Open House during Avon River Days at Shand House Museum. 389 Avon St. Windsor. 

The museum will be open Friday August 3 from 10am to 5pm. 

Built in 1890 for newlyweds Clifford and Henrie Shand, this ornate, Queen Anne-style house was once considered a modern marvel in Windsor.

Featuring a fancy, original indoor bathroom, central heating, and stylish furniture from the Windsor furniture factory, the house stands as a testament to the Shand family legacy.

Admire the front hall’s gleaming cherry-wood paneling. See a display of Clifford’s memorabilia from the early days of the sport of bicycling. Take the servant’s stairs to the upper floor and climb the tower for a magnificent view of the Avon River and countryside; a beautiful setting for this comfortable family home.

Admission by donation. 

Larger vehicles please park along Water Street.
