In celebration of our 50th anniversary in 2017, Heritage Ottawa created our popular online series entitled 50 Years | 50 Stories.
This valuable resource shares the illustrated stories of 50 buildings that Heritage Ottawa helped to save and preserve over the course of our first 50 years of advocating for our city's heritage structures. Read about the architectural and historical significance of these important places, the threats they faced, and the people who mobilized to save them. A few stories are about buildings lost along the way—making our appreciation for the successes even greater. Many thanks to Heritage Ottawa member and architectural historian Ken Elder for the considerable hours of research he devoted to this project.
All 50 stories are also published in French. Vous pouvez les lire ici.
Heritage Ottawa gratefully acknowledges the support of Ontario150 for this project.
