A Winter Day In New Edinburgh

I went to New Edinburgh on the 15th of February, Family Day (hence all the snow, which as of this writing is disappearing). Over the next few days, I'll be showing a series from the area. You might remember this building from previous posts- it was an early schoolhouse when the neighbourhood was established, and these days it houses offices.


This home caught my eye.


As did another, Frechette House, which had a historical plaque on it. 


Down the street from Frechette House, and across from Rideau Hall, I photographed St. Bartholomew's Anglican Church again.

  13. @Norma: thank you!

    @Kate: it is quite a beautiful part of the city.

    @Red: these places are well cared for.

    @Nancy: thank you!

    @Beth: it was cold that day. Today it's below freezing, so the thaw remains in a holding pattern.

    @Gracita: thank you!

  14. Nice pix! New Edinburgh sounds Scottish but Frechette and Rideau sound French.

  17. I remember a few of the photos but they are still nice to see. The church looks so pretty in the snow. We ended up with 21 cm. yesterday!!

  19. Lovely. THe neighborhood looks good under the snow.

  20. The church is beautiful in that snowy world.

  21. @Cheryl: well when it was founded as a village, it was a Scotsman who founded it, Thomas McKay. Frechette would be typical- the Ottawa area has a lot of French and English speakers. And Rideau is the oldest of the names, as it's French for curtain- Champlain gave the Rideau Falls its name based on its appearance, and the name of that falls carries forward in other locations as well.

    @Sharon: it was one of the sunniest days of the entire winter.

    @Bill: I had a good deal of that over these posts- sunshine and shadow on the snow.

    @Pamela: we've avoided additional snowfalls thus far, but the skies have clouded over as the day has gone on. We might get some snow out of it, given the temperatures.

    @VP: and more to come.

    @Halcyon: it does, yes.

    @RedPat: I do too. It's a regular for Doors Open. I should get up there and have a look when that happens. I think it'll be well worth having a look inside.

    @Jan: it certainly is!

  22. It all looks lovely with the blue sky. The church is beautiful!

  23. They all look wonderful. I love seeing the snow too (of course).

    ReplyDelete
  24. A charming house. I do hope the spring flowers are on there way now though

    ReplyDelete
  25. They all look gorgeous in the snow William but I particularly like the simplicity of the old school house...

  26. Cold looking, but still fine buildings. Reminds me of the huge homes built in the little towns of Iowa in the 1870's through the early part of the century. Of course, there were little homes too that most of the populace lived in, but they were gone when I was growing up.

  27. @Marleen: I must photograph inside that church.

    @Lauren: we are presently getting additional snow!

    @Mo: at present they are in a holding pattern.

    @Linda: thanks!

    @Geoff: I do too.

    @Mari: most of the homes in this area are from that era.
