Robertson House

32 Cameron Avenue
c. 1887
Residential

View Additional images of building.

This 1 1/2-storey brick veneer structure was built around 1887 in the then-rural area south of Ottawa. The pitched roof, double-gabled façade, ornate verge boards, and one-storey veranda with its extensive woodwork and central gable are all of architectural interest. The chinoiserie pattern of the railings reveals the handiwork of a proficient local carpenter, but many of the other decorative elements – ranging from the eight-pointed stars in the verge board to the dentils and spindles on the upper part of the veranda – were all manufactured by machine in local planning mills, and could be ordered from design books or catalogues. The L-plan of this house and the asymmetrical façade reflect the ultimate triumph of the romantic sensibility over the Georgian symmetry that had lingered in the Ottawa area.

Road Renewal Project Open House: Wed. Mar. 29, 2017

The City of Ottawa is hosting a public information session on road renewal in the northwest portion of Old Ottawa South, where the existing watermain, sanitary sewer, and road infrastructure has reached the end of its useful life and is in need of replacement/upgrading.This open house is an opportunity to review the design, ask questions, and provide comments on the proposed works.

The proposed work will involve the construction of new watermains and sanitary sewers along with full road reconstruction. House services will also be replaced up to the property line. Cycling lanes on Aylmer Avenue in the eastbound direction, and on Seneca Sreet in the southbound direction, will be implemented through pavement markings.

The City is planning construction activities from May 2018 to June 2020, with winter shut down periods from November to April.
