Windsor Port Authority contributes to outdoor marine museum

September 28, 2018

The Windsor Port Authority is partnering with the Sandwich Teen Action Group to create a new public space called the Outdoor Marine Museum in Windsor’s Historic Sandwich Towne. The Outdoor Marine Museum will provide new public space for community events, socialization, relaxation, and fun ways to learn about the port’s activities and history.

An anchor from a decommissioned lake carrier will define the entrance off Sandwich Street into an outdoor plaza for small community gatherings and performances, as well as the annual Christmas Tree display. Visitors will then follow a tree-lined pathway through many Indigenous and marine artifacts that convey the economic and social history of Windsor through its port. More than a dozen display panels will trace port development from the traditional lands of the First Nations to the arrival of European settlers, to the major port of national strategic interest that is Windsor today.

This project is partially made possible with funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, through a partnership with the Sandwich Teen Action Group.
