Barns Appreciation Project

The Rideau Township Historical Society, located just south of Ottawa, has announced that they are still collecting information and photos of barns in the former township of Rideau before they all disappear.

They say, "The Barns Appreciation Project began in 2006. It represents an attempt to gather a photographic record with supporting documentation of the barns in the former Rideau Township before they all disappear.

Between 12 and 15 volunteers have been working of the project. We now have 1000 pictures from over 300 sites. The next phase to get interior photographs and supporting is just getting underway".

So if you are aware of any barns that have yet been photographed, contact the president, Bill Tupper, at, or go to the website at
