History

Ottawa South was originally settled around 1814 by British and American settlers. During that period, the region was sparsely populated, even after the construction of the canal. The city of Ottawa had little influence over the fledging community in those days compared to the larger community that lay south of the Rideau River and across the Billing estate. 

The construction of the Confederation bridge in 1867 increased access from the larger city to the north. The region grew rapidly, with Rideauville being incorporated as a police village in 1905. The 1920s and 1930s saw a shift to the Craftsman architectural style. These designs have received upgrades over the years, giving the area its eclectic style.

Since then, buses have replaced streetcars, stores have changed, and Carleton University has been built on the old garbage dumpsite.
