Sandwich Town is getting a grand new entrance as the City of Windsor moves forward with the creation and installation of an arch over Sandwich Street at the eastern entrance to one of Windsor’s most historic neighbourhoods.

This project will include 14 Stories of Sandwich on plaques at the limestone bases of the arch. One plaque will comment on the Tecumseh Brock Monument located in the Roundabout.  One plaque will comment on the archaeology that took place during the construction of the Roundabout. 

The Stories on the remaining 12 plaques will be determined through online selection of the top Stories identified in the charts.   These stories are intended to share some of the many heritage stories that have contributed to the fabric of what Sandwich Town is today. 

Submissions have been received and it is now time to vote to identify the top Stories.  The Stories of Sandwich submissions tell of the historic buildings and businesses, the people, and the public spaces located within Sandwich Town.

This arch is a part of the Legacy Projects under the Celebrating 2017 Initiative marking our city’s 125th anniversary of incorporation, and the 150th anniversary of Ontario and Canada.  Once complete, the arch will complement the stunning new sculpture and monument to Chief Tecumseh and General Brock that will be located in a new roundabout where Sandwich Street merges with University Avenue.

The information on this form is collected under the authority of section 10, Municipal Act. The information will only be used to improve the City of Windsor’s commitment to customer engagement and is subject to the provisions of the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, 1990.  For questions about this survey, you may contact Cathy Masterson by calling (519) 253-2300 x 2724 or emailing cmasterson@citywindsor.ca.
