25 des Outaouais Road,
North West Company fur trader John Macdonell built this rustic but grand Georgian House in 1817. For many years he operated a shipping business on the Ottawa River. William Williamson, founder of the Laurentian Lumber Co., purchased the house in 1882. Today, dedicated volunteers work with the Ontario Heritage Trust to restore the site.
