How well do you know Old Ottawa South?
- Do you know where one of the founders of the National Hockey League and co-owner of the early Ottawa Senators used to live?
- Can you locate where the Rideauville, Wyoming Park, and Oakland Heights subdivisions used to be?
- Where is the Notch of the Mountain? How about Stegman’s Rapids?
We now have a 100-page, full-colour book to answer your questions: Exploring the Built Heritage of Old Ottawa South.
Book Launch & Lecture with Heritage Ottawa
The book sketches the history of the neighbourhood and then tells the story of 17 built structures, including 9 typical homes from differing eras and 2 streetscapes. Knowing more about these heritage features will help us to protect and sustain our valued community.
The official book launch will take place Wednesday, February 19, 2014, 7pm at the Main Branch of the Ottawa Public Library as part of Heritage Ottawa’s Annual Bob and Mary Anne Phillips Memorial Lecture. Featured speaker Julie Harris will discuss our neighbourhood history with a talk entitled ‘Eyes on the Street ’: The Heritage of Old Ottawa South. For more details, see www.heritageottawa.org. Admission is free, and the book will be available for sale for $15.
A great gift idea for those who cherish Old Ottawa South!
