Macdonell-Williamson House

Macdonell-Williamson House, (1817) Point Fortune, Ontario


This house was built by a former North West Company fur trader on the banks of the Ottawa River. It is owned by the Ontario Heritage Foundation and run locally as a museum. As a consultant to Robertson Martin Architects my initial responsibilities have been to advise on as-found recording, building evolution and paint sampling for the chromo-chronology study. Some of the rooms are considered to be some of the best Georgian features in the province.
