District 1


Old Aylmer, situated in the surroundings of rue Principale, is probably the area, within the entire city, where there is the highest concentration of well-preserved historic buildings.

For example, there is Christ Church, the oldest Anglican church of the Outaouais, the Symmes Inn, that accommodated travellers from Lower Canada going upriver on the Ottawa River, and several houses dating over 180 years.
