HISTORY OF THE
MACDONELL-WILLIAMSON HOUSE

This magnificent residence was built in 1817 on the Ottawa River by John
Macdonell (fur trader, partner in the North West Company, District Court
Judge, entrepreneur) for his Métis wife, Magdeleine Poitras and their 12 children.

In 1882, William Williamson and his wife, Mary Ellen Everett, acquired the
house. The Williamsons made several changes to the House and their
descendants preserved the property until it was expropriated for the
Québec Hydro project at Carillon in 1961

The Ontario Heritage Trust has owned this National Historic Site since 1978.

Friends of the Macdonell-Williamson House Inc. was appointed custodian in 1997.
