Heritage Ottawa Walking Tour – Noffke and Younghusband Houses

This coming weekend, on Sunday Aug. 19, Heritage Ottawa’s John Macleod will be conducting a walking tour of parts of the Glebe: http://heritageottawa.org/en/join_heritage_ottawa_a_walking_tour_glebe

Here’s a sampling of some of the houses he’ll be showing you, starting out with Thomas Birkett’s house at 517 O’Connor (at intersection with Clemow):

or Noffke’s own home at 20 Clemow, now undergoing a large restoration job:

As well as Central Park, where there used to be summer pavilions:
