Pinhey’s Point Historic Site

Step back in time to the early 1800s.  Open May through August, the Pinhey Estate is an 88-acre heritage estate located on the shores of the Ottawa River. The estate, known as Horaceville, was the home of Hamnett Kirkes Pinhey, a British settler and leading citizen of Upper Canada in the early 1800s.  The site was donated to and is managed by the City of Ottawa, and includes the house and the ruins of Old St. Mary’s Church, tours of which are available on request. The site presents a range of exhibits and programming, including one, Remedies, Elixirs and Medical Men about health care in old March Township.  The Estate is a great stop for boaters, picnickers and those wanting to connect with local history.
