Walking Tour of the Stittsville Historic District

I would like to thank Heritage Ottawa for providing this unique opportunity for residents to explore Stittsville’s History on a walking tour.

 

Stittsville, settled in the early 1820’s and rebuilt after the Great Fire of 1870 razed the village, has a designated historic section on its main street.  The tour will look at some of the late 19th and early 20th century houses and businesses within this area, and tell the stories of some of its inhabitants. The history of Stittsville also includes a significant railway story.  Part of the Heritage Ottawa summer walking tour series.

 

The event will be led by Barbara Bottriell, the former president of the Goulbourn Township Historical Society, and author of “Stittsville: A Sense of Place”, and recent recipient of the Stittsville Appreciation Awards Roger Griffiths Memorial Citizen of the Year.

 

The walk will take place Sunday, June 25th from 2:00-3:30 PM and participants can meet at the Municipal Parking Lot adjacent to the house at 1536 Stittsville Main St. Admission price for members of Heritage Ottawa is $5 and for non-members, $10 (payable in cash at the start of the tour).

The tour will look at some of the late 19th and early 20th century houses and businesses within this area, and tell the stories of some of its inhabitants.

 

I encourage residents with an interest in history to come out and learn more about our fascinating community. Thank you to Heritage Ottawa and the Goulbourn Township Historical Society for assisting in this tour.
