This site stands as a testament to upper- and middle-class rural life in the 19th century. Built between 1820 and 1849, the Georgian-style house maintains many of its original features, including the imposing entrance and staircase, servants’ quarters and 1860s wallpaper. Explore the history of transportation in Ottawa from steamships to railways in our new exhibition, City in Motion.
