The history of the town built by the dam, along the Heritage Rideau River goes back nearly 150 years. It has many fine stores, restaurants, services, churches, parks and annual festivities that make for a lively, vibrant community. A visit to Manotick is really not complete without a visit to Watson’s Mill, built in 1859 by the founder of Manotick. It is a fine example of a 19th century gristmill still producing flour.
