This Queen Anne revival mansion was built in 1909 for John R. Booth, Ottawa’s wealthiest lumber baron. Architect John W.H. Watts designed this three-storey red brick building with interior hand-carved woodwork, stenciled ceiling, tapestry wallpaper and decorative light fixtures. Previously owned by the Laurentian Club, it is now the Laurentian Leadership Centre of Trinity Western University.
