The Billings Estate Museum was the home and property of Braddish and Lamira Billings, two of Ottawa's founding settlers. The well-preserved and architecturally unique Billing house, built c. 1827-1828, is one of Ottawa's oldest. It is the focal point of a beautiful heritage site which also includes several outbuildings and a cemetery nestled on 8.4 acres of lush, green parkland. Intimate exhibits illustrate the intertwined stories of family and community over two centuries. The collection of family heirlooms, personal belongings, furnishings, tools, equipment, textiles and archival materials includes over 24,000 items dating from the late 1700's to the mid 1900's. Feel free to browse on your own or to take a tour with one of our friendly, knowledgeable guides. Or, as scheduled, take part in hands-on activities, lively special events, presentations, tours and educational lectures and workshops. Call us for a calendar of activities. Hours: Wednesday through Sunday from noon to 5pm. The Tea on the Lawn is served Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sundays from noon to 4:30pm.
