The walk will show off the residences of nine prime ministers who lived in Sandy Hill at some point in their lives.  We'll talk about what they were doing while living at these addresses.   


Route

Meet at the Strathcona Fountain, on the south side of Laurier between Charlotte and Range Road.  From there, we'll walk west along Laurier to Chapel, north on Chapel to Daly, east along Daly to Charlotte, then back to the fountain, with occasional minor detours along the way.


About

François (père) researched the history of Sandy Hill in support of the initiative to designate Laurier Ave. E. as Prime Ministers' Row—Canada's first outdoor museum.   His son François is interested in the history of Ottawa and has experience as a museum guide.
