An upcoming lecture hosted by Heritage Ottawa:
9th Annual Bob and Mary Anne Phillips Memorial Lecture
Eyes on the Street: The Heritage of Old Ottawa South
Lecturer: Julie Harris
Date: Wednesday, February 19, 2014
Location: Ottawa Public Library Auditorium, 120 Metcalfe Street (corner of Laurier Avenue W)
Time: 7:00 PM
Nestled in between crossings of the Rideau River and the Rideau Canal lies one of Ottawa’s first residential neighbourhoods – Old Ottawa South. This lecture will explore the origins and development of Old Ottawa South, the architectural and landscapes elements that contribute to its character, incremental changes that are challenging the neighbourhood, and the benefits of documenting the area’s history. Following the presentation, a panel representing the Ottawa South History Projectwill respond to questions.
The publication Exploring the Built Heritage of Old Ottawa South will be launched at this lecture, and will be available for sale for $15.
Julie Harris of Contentworks Inc. is a long-time resident of Old Ottawa South, as well as a public historian and heritage consultant with over 30 years of experience on heritage projects across Canada.
