A Store Older Than Ottawa


To celebrate the 225th Anniversary of the founding of Nepean Township, the Nepean Centrepointe branch will be hosting Bruce Elliot, Professor of History at Carleton University and author of The City Beyond: A History of Nepean, Birthplace of Canada’s Capital, for A Store Older Than Ottawa recounting the history of Bellows & Stacey’s Store.

Operating at Nepean Point from 1824-1828, the store was long forgotten until a fateful day in 2017 when a Museum in Vermont discovered that it had a very rare antiquarian ledger account book from Bellows & Stacey’s amongst its collection!  It has much to tell us about the local economy of the region and about the earliest settlers on both sides of the Ottawa River.

Join us for an evening of storytelling, socializing, & secrets from Nepean’s Past!

Monday October 16th at 6:30 Registration Required.
