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

The members of the Huntley Township Historical Society have been verifying 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:
