Long Description:
The Windsor Armouries is a two-storey, red brick Richardson Romanesque structure located on Freedom Way in downtown Windsor. With a three-storey tower, it typifies the design of Canadian armouries in the early 1900s and is the only armoury in Essex County.

This downtown Windsor landmark is recognized for its heritage value by City of Windsor Bylaw 337-1999.

This location is not currently being used as an Armoury.
Era: Napoleonic - WW I

General Comments:
Completion is scheduled for fall, 2017. Interesting to see that the University has retained some of the military vestiges.
