WINDSOR BOOTLEGGER HARRY LOW'S MANSION HAS BEEN RESTORED!


THE WINDSOR STAR: A Prohibition-era bootlegger’s mansion that heritage buffs feared would be demolished has regained its Roaring Twenties dazzle thanks to the owner of Better Made  kitchen cabinet company, Vern Myslichuk

The Low-Martin home was built in 1928 by rum-runner Harry Low and was later owned by federal cabinet minister Paul Martin Sr. It sat empty and deteriorating for many years but owner Vern Myclichuk has spent the past two years renovating the structure.

The home has hosted a wide range of visitors over the years, including Pierre Trudeau and Chicago mob boss Al Capone.


The owner of the home, Vern Myclichuk, owner of BetterMade Cabinets, is opening the doors for the public to see the completed renovation.


Rum Running History Windsor/Detroit: The many islands of the Detroit River made smuggling between Windsor and Detroit difficult to detect during Prohibition.



Come take a spectacular tour of the Low-Martin Mansion! A book release on this home will take place the weekend of Art in the Park (June 6th/7th).
