“Pretty but small”

Pinhey's Point Historic Site
Reviewed December 9, 2010

We visited Pinhey's Point in the summer, the weather was nice and it was pleasant to walk around near the water. I had read about it online and thought that there would be more ruins - was very disappointed to discover that the church ruins are on private property and you can't see them at all. Actual area was smaller than expected and it only took us about half an hour to explore. I agree with a previous reviewer that it has potential but it's current state isn't anything special.

Thank geepear

This is a historic estate on the Ottawa River built from 1820 onwards. It was the type of estate-farm where the owners tried to create a small village, including a church.

The stone buildings are picturesque and interesting, but empty. Some of the buildings are mere ruins. The remains of the church and the mill are on private property and can't be viewed.

This would make a really nice restoration or museum village if the Capital Commission who owns it could come up with the money and buy out the private part as well.

The point itself is an ecological sanctuarty and is not open, but can be viewed from the estate. It is a nice place to photograph the river and the Laurentian escarpment on the other side.

Hi John,
We hope you have the chance to visit the site in the summer or fall when the museum is open, and have the chance to take some photos when there is less snow on the ground! It's quite photogenic all throughout the year.
