Historical significance:

Built between 1792 and 1798, the Duff Baby House is considered to be the oldest building in Windsor. The house was built by Alexander Duff as a fur trade post. In 1807 the building was bought by James Baby and was used as the headquarters of U.S. General Harrison until it was ravaged by the British during the War of 1812.

The two-and-a-half-story timber structure was refinished as Baby’s residence in 1816. It is located at 221 Mill Street in Old Sandwich Town, which is the oldest part of Windsor, Ontario, where settlements date back to the late 17th century. The Duff Baby House is also one of the best-preserved and oldest Georgian-style houses in Ontario. Today the building is owned by the Ontario Heritage Trust and houses government offices.
