Pinhey's Point Historic Site
Experience Pinhey's Point Historic Site, an 88-acre historic estate located on the scenic shores of the Ottawa River. "Horaceville" was once the home of Hamnett Kirkes Pinhey, a British settler who became a leading member of Upper Canada. Through agriculture, entrepreneurialism and politics, Pinhey sought to improve his standing in his new country. Today, the site is a perfect destination for boaters, picnickers and anyone interested in exploring our ample green space.
Guided tours of the house will reveal unique architectural details, compelling family stories and details about the lives of an influential Ottawa Valley family. Regular programs and events shed light on the natural history of the area, including its geology and wildlife.
