Pinhey's Point Historic Site

Experience Pinhey's Point Historic Site, an 88-acre historic site and estate located on the scenic shores of the Ottawa River. The estate, "Horaceville" was the home of Hamnett Kirkes Pinhey, a British settler who became a leading member of Upper Canada. The site is a perfect destination for boaters, picnickers and anyone interested in exploring our ample green space.

The Honourable Hamnett Kirkes Pinhey emigrated to Canada from England in 1820 to develop his estate, HORACEVILLE, Pinhey's Point. That same year, 1820, he built the first Pinhey house to which additions were made over the next 28 years. This property remained in the Pinhey family until 1971 when March Township purchased it.

In 1990 the City of Kanata (now part of the City of Ottawa) acquired Pinhey's Point. One of the City's biggest projects was the restoration of the Hamnett Pinhey mansion. Today, the City of Ottawa continues to develop the site's heritage and waterfront potential. The Pinhey's Point Foundation, established in 1980, has played a significant role in preserving and developing the estate as an historic site and recreation area. The Foundation's Museum Committee along with Pinhey's Point staff plan and prepare exhibits each year.
