This month we are highlighting our work at Ottawa’s Cultural & Heritage Sites!
Despite Canada’s recent beginnings, only becoming a country in 1867, there is an abundance of historic sites to be explored across our expansive land. There is nowhere better to explore them than in Ottawa and the national capital region!
From historic farming estates, such as the Fairfield Heritage House, to important monuments in the heart of Ottawa, such as the Bytown Museum, 3D Virtual tours offer you the possibility of touring and enjoying these historic sites from the comfort of your own home!
Come tour these Historic and Cultural Sites across Canada’s Capital Region!
3D Virtual tours offer you the opportunity to visit and tour a number of historic sites through your computer, phone, or tablet. Take some time to walk through the following tours and click around, as each is accompanied by background information on the location’s historic significance.

Watson’s Mill Heritage Site
Location 5525 Dickinson St, Manotick, ON
Built in the 1860’s by Moss Kent Dickinson and Joseph Currier, the vision for Watons’s Mill was to build a milling complex and new community in what is now present-day Manotick. Watson’s Mill was used as a mill for over 100 years, celebrating its centenary, before the mill manager Harry Watson, the namesake, entered into a partnership with the National Capital Commission.
Today, flour can still be purchased from Watson’s Mill, which is fully operational. Take the opportunity to explore the historic Mill via a 3D Virtual tour, with special access to the watermill, only accessible virtually!
