Things to do
A visit to the Manoir-Papineau is as satisfying to the nature enthusiast as it is to the history buff. Classified as a heritage building, the imposing manor overlooks the Ottawa River.
Stepping back to the time of Louis-Joseph Papineau, take part in geocaching, uncover a family secret or two, and finish your journey back in time by savouring a Louis-Joseph Papineau Oolong tea sipped from a cup adorned with the favourite flowers of the former Seigneur of the manoir.
