Windsor Motors Ltd. was established in 1946 by Les Longmate and Robert Millar, who arrived in Grande Prairie after serving in World War II. In 1947 they built their Chrysler Plymouth dealership on this corner, complete with shop, offices and a car lot. In 1962 it became Windsor Ford when they joined the Ford Motor Company. After Windsor Ford moved to a new location in 1978, Windsor Court was built on the north end of the lot. The Bank of Nova Scotia and the current strip mall were built ca. 1980.
