A new bronze plaque honouring the lives of Mary and Henry Bibb has been stolen.

In February, the plaque was restored, and City Council re-dedicated Mackenzie Hall Park as Mary E. Bibb Park during a virtual announcement coinciding with Black History Month.

On Friday March 26th, 2021, the plaque was reported missing to Windsor Police.

The cost of creating and restoring the plaque was over six thousand dollars,  but the city says the value of what it represents is worth far more.

Anyone with information on the theft of the plaque or its whereabouts is asked to contact Windsor Police Service at 519-258-6111 or Crime Stoppers at 519-258-8477.
