  In 1998, a group of former residents of the “McDougall Street Corridor” in Windsor canvassed current and former residents of the area to determine the level of interest in holding a neighbourhood re-union. The first celebration of the McDougall Street Reunion took place during the second weekend of August, 2003.
 
In 2005 the African Canadian Community Centre of Windsor and Essex County has undertaken a project to identify residences and businesses in the redevelopment zone. CGI Information Systems and Management Consultants Inc. has generously donated 18 panels of the 1952 Goad’s Underwriter’s Maps of the City of Windsor to facilitate this project.

  North- Riverside Drive/Sandwich Street
South- Ellis Street
East- Parent Avenue
West- Pelissier Street
 

The following names were registered during the McDougall Street Neighbourhood Reunion, August 13 & 14, 2005.

The surname/last names listed above have many individual first names registered for each. This is just an indication of how many family members lived at that given address.

To facilitate your involvement in the Neighbourhood Registry we have included two methods of registering your family information.

1. Registration Forms and a map of this area in the City of Windsor (circa 1952) is available at the office of The African Canadian Community Centre located 647 Ouellette Ave.

2. Online on Facebook
