Willistead Manor, Walkerville

Being a liquor baron allows one to construct an extravagant home.  This was the home of Edward Walker, heir to Hiram, completed in 1906.

This is an uncommonly extravagant house for Windsor.  On the Detroit side, there are plenty of mansions from this era, some offered at bargain prices.  Stark differences in crime rates, demographics, and poverty explain the prices of housing only a few miles away across the river.
