The Frontier Social Club grew to be one of the foremost clubs in Windsor. In addition to social activities and dances the club was responsible for many charitable endeavours including food and clothing drives and the collection of funds for those in financial need, suffering from illness or for burial costs. The original Frontier Club was located on McDougall Street and was owned and operated by Jim Bolds. In later years the upper floors of the club were rented out to the Masons and the Household of Ruth. Many political meetings were held at this location. In 1950 the club’s charter was purchased by Clarence Monroe and the club was relocated first to Brant Street and later Mercer Street. The Frontier Club on Mercer Street was closed in the early 1960’s due to redevelopment of the area.
