Mackenzie Hall Cultural Centre Doors Open Windsor

Mackenzie Hall Cultural Centre

Mackenzie Hall, the former Essex County Courthouse, was built in 1855 by Mackenzie Builders. It is the fourth courthouse built on this site, and contains part of the original 1850s jail. Canada's second prime minister, Alexander Mackenzie, was head of this building firm. This stately stone landmark is now used as a cultural centre for the City of Windsor.
