Victorian village. Idyllically situated along

the historic Rideau Canal, less than an hour’s drive from both Ottawa, the nation’s capital, and the U.S.-Canada border, Merrickville

loves to celebrate its history and culture

and heartily invites everyone to join in!

To enjoy its heritage, natural attractions, delightful restaurants and shops, its small

town hospitality, and its all-round, year-

round enchantment.

Settled by William Merrick in 1793, Merrickville was once one of the largest industrial centers on the Rideau with grist mills, woolen mills and sawmills, all powered by the river. When Colonel By constructed the Rideau Canal (1826-1832), he built three locks here. The original blockhouse, built for defense purposes, still stands beside the Canal.
