Dickinson House

This 150-year-old house – built in 1867 by M.K. Dickinson, founder of the village of Manotick – was the residence from 1870-1972 of the Dickinson, Spratt and Watson families: owners and operators of the grist mill across the square. The house is distinctive for its New England federal-style architecture, which is a rare and unusual sight in Ontario. For Digital Doors Open, explore an impressive 3D virtual tour of the house, or wander the village of Manotick by aerial drone through the video below!
