Embassy of Algeria (Fleck-Paterson House) Doors Open Ottawa

Embassy of Algeria (Fleck-Paterson House)

This house was built in 1901 by J.R. Booth for his daughter, Gertrude Fleck. The house remained her private residence until her death in 1940. It was then purchased by Senator Norman Paterson, who lived in it until his death in 1983. The house was bought by the Algerian Embassy in 2002 and is now used as a chancery.
