Sunday, June 9, 2019 - 14:00 to 15:30

Join us for a walk through part of Centretown and many of its fascinating old apartment buildings.  Learn how apartment living emerged in early 20th-century Ottawa, evolving from three-storey “walk-ups” to “Grandes Dames” like The Shefford and Windsor Arms, which in turn led to modernist high-rises in the 1960s and 1970s.  Find out about the entrepreneurs and designers who created them and the people who lived in them.


TOUR GUIDES: Carolyn Quinn and Richard Belliveau are members of Heritage Ottawa’s board of directors and contributors to From Walk-Up to High-Rise: Ottawa’s Historic Apartment Buildings, now in its second printing.
