Billings Estate National Historic Site is home to the city's oldest house that still remains extant. The historic wood-paneled structure was built by Braddish Billings, in the year 1829. Over the decades, it served as the main residence for the next four clans of the same family. A visit to the historic site lets visitors explore the story behind its construction, as well acquainting them with some interesting facts like who benefited from the iconic Rideau Canal and who financed the construction of the Billings Bridge. Private tours, exciting programs and rotating exhibits chronicle the life of one of the first families of the city.
