Founding of Leamington, The

Wilkinson's Corners, the fledgling settlement that formed around Alexander Wilkinson's land holdings, was slow to develop until the late 1860s. By then, regular stagecoach connections had been established between Windsor and the renamed community of Leamington and dock facilities were under construction on Lake Erie.
