Remnants of Britannia's past as resort getaway up for heritage protection

Residents worry it would leave them with rodents, mould, sagging foundations.

The City of Ottawa wants to preserve Britannia Village's history as a summer resort, but some worry a heritage designation will leave them stuck with rickety homes close to ruin.

During a built heritage committee meeting on Tuesday, city staff initially recommended eight properties for heritage designation, most of them built as second homes for wealthy families who flocked to Britannia as a bucolic Ottawa River getaway.

Lesley Collins, the city's program manager for heritage planning, said the cottage community grew from "the Victorian ideals of taking the airs and getting out of the heat and dirt of the city in the summertime."

Britannia's "golden age" arrived with the streetcar around 1900, with most of the properties under consideration dating from that era or shortly before.

Wrapped in generous verandas, some come with rustic-sounding names like "The Pines" and "The Gables."

"It's a very unique story in Ottawa's history," said Collins. "It actually speaks to early ideas about transit and how transit can spur development."

Summers spent yachting on Ottawa River

The former inhabitants were businesspeople, civil servants and local officials from Nepean Township.

Many played a leading role in the early history of what's now the Britannia Yacht Club, whose 19th-century clubhouse was the eighth property on the designation list.

The original homeowner of 195 Bradford St., dentist Mark McElhinney, was a prominent member of the club. Malcolm Campbell now lives in that home.

He came to committee on Tuesday to ask it to hold off on the designation, at least until it can be checked by a structural engineer.

Campbell said people come by the home to "smile and remember how it was." But he said the house is chilly during winter, and sits on a foundation of timber and flagstone.

In his view, its original inhabitants could never have expected it to last 126 years.

"The stone is sagging, the wood is deteriorating and I'm getting dry rot. It's heartbreaking," Campbell said.

"I've painted it and loved it and done the basic sweat equity to the home, however I do believe it is approaching the finish line of its lifespan."

Staff ultimately recommended deferring that designation to allow more time to consult with Campbell, who was out of the country as they worked with other residents. That left seven properties on the list.

The committee voted to designate all seven, sending them to council for final approval.

Bay Coun. Theresa Kavanagh called Britannia Village "a real jewel" in her ward, which doesn't usually see many heritage designations.

'It reminds them of the old times'

Heritage designation can mean complications for residents who want to renovate their properties, since alterations and additions require city approval.

Significant work or demolition requires council to weigh in through a process that can be time-consuming and expensive.

But designation also opens the door to grants that can help residents keep heritage properties in good repair.

  • City rushes to grant heritage status to 'most critical' buildings

While Campbell got a reprieve, Janet Durno didn't. She lives just down the street in a 120-year old cottage once inhabited by civil servant and yacht club member Ebenezer Stockton.

Now she's dealing with wet and mouldy insulation, an unusable fireplace and an unfortunate groundhog that died while shorting out her electrical system.

"I do value the heritage nature of Britannia, and for many years have maintained my old house at considerable cost, but I am very concerned about the proposal to designate it," she said.

"In my view the house is becoming increasingly fragile. It was built as a cottage with little storage space, no basement or proper foundation."

Collins called the reality in Britannia Village an "unusual situation," but noted that there are several heritage homes in Lowertown without modern foundations.

Campbell said he's studied the "wonderful history" of Britannia Village and respects the need to commemorate it, but he thinks some properties might be beyond saving.

"I can understand the city and people loving it because it reminds them of the old times and what it used to be like," he said. "Yet you are sort of stuck with that small cottage as your principal residence, so it's a little tricky."

Britannia Yacht Club

Your Cottage in the City

  • Last updated:  January 24, 2019

The Britannia Yacht Club (BYC) is a private social club, yacht club and tennis club based in Britannia Ottawa, Ontario. It was founded in 1887 by a group of cottagers. [ citation needed ] The members have contributed to the sports of yachting and tennis. The non profit corporation celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2012.  The main entrance is on Cassels at Bradford Street.

BYC is located on an extension of land at the eastern end of Lac Deschênes near the Deschênes Rapids on the Ottawa River. A land block owned by the National Capital Commission on the south side of the harbour is leased to the BYC. The area immediately south of the property is occupied by residences of Britannia Bay. To the south and east of the property, the land is owned by the City of Ottawa and is occupied by the Britannia Water Treatment Plant, and the Britannia Conservation area. To the north, is the Town of Aylmer, Quebec across the 800 m span of the Deschênes rapids. The harbour was built from an abandoned power canal, which lay beside the club property. This harbour has been expanded twice since its original development. The harbour water level is controlled by a system of stop logs at its entrance. The harbour is a well-protected basin consisting of a main harbour and an inner harbour, which provide 250 wet moorings of the Mediterranean type or floating finger docks. There are unlimited dry mooring spaces for ramp-launched boats and for crane-launched keel boats of less than 1,360 kg.

Korolyov or Korolev is an industrial city in Moscow Oblast, Russia, well known as the cradle of Soviet and Russian space exploration. As of the 2010 Census, its population was 183,402, the largest as a science city. As of 2018, the population was more than 222,000 people. It was known as Kaliningrad from 1938 to 1996 and served as the leading Soviet center for production of anti-tank and air-defense guns. In 1946, in the aftermath of World War II, the artillery plant was reconstructed for production of rockets, launch vehicles, and spacecraft, under the guidance of Russian scientist and academician Sergei Korolev, who envisioned, consolidated and guided the activities of many people in the Soviet space-exploration program. The plant later became known as the RKK Energia; when the Vostok space vehicle was being developed, this research center was designated as NII-88 or POB 989.
