WALKERVILLE’S WILLISTEAD MANOR
Willistead Manor has served all types of functions including home, gallery, library and even jail - all while successfully retaining its architectural integrity. The stunning, Albert Kahn-designed building has even survived multiple attempts to "pave paradise and put up a parking lot". For more than 100 years and in the face of constant pressure, Willistead Manor has become a symbol of strength and adaptation. In interviews with people from all walks of life including architects, craftspeople, historians and Walker family descendants, Willistead Manor: The Home that Shaped a Community examines the significance of the breathtaking architectural marvel to generations of people throughout Southwestern Ontario.
