LACAC

Since Huntley Township is now incorporated into the City of Ottawa, the former West Carleton LACAC which looked after Huntley Township is supposedly represented by one member on the City of Ottawa LACAC. Since joining the City of Ottawa, the level of the cities interest in the heritage buildings of Huntley Township has decreased and at present the "heritage Committee" is staffed solely by politicians who know nothing about the heritage of our township.

HERITAGE BUILDING INVENTORY


2019 City of Ottawa Survey

The City of Ottawa has toured the city looking for buildings to add to the Registry of Heritage Buildings. The criteria for a listing are described in the pamphlet available here. Note that being listed in not onerous as the only requirement is to notify the city 60 days prior to demolition of the building. The list of buildings for West Carleton to be added to the list is available here; at present only Carp Agricultural Hall and the Diefenbunker are listed from Huntley. You can make suggestions to the Heritage Committee at City Hall.

Pamphlet is available here: Heritage_Inventory_brochure_2019_BIL

List of addresses of buildings to be designated is available here: Proposed_Ward5 buildings


Earlier Surveys

The members of the Huntley Township Historical Society have verifyied an inventory of "heritage buildings" (greater than 100 years old in 1960) compiled by Heritage Canada and the National Capital Commission during the late 1960's and early 1970's.  The primary purpose of this verification is to determine which of the heritage buildings are still standing and if they are no longer extant, what happened to them.  The results are shown below

Based on the 1851 and 1861 censuses, "The Ottawa Country", published by the National Capital Commission in 1968, stated on page 24 that in Huntley Township there were the following numbers and types of houses:
