Pinhey's Point - Summer Speaker Series

  • Pinhey's Point, 270 Pinhey's Point Road 270 Pinhey Point Road Dunrobin, ON, K0A 1T0 Canada

Pinhey’s Point Foundation presents the first event in their “Summer Speakers Series" - Discovering archaeological heritage at Pinhey’s Point on June 27 at 7pm.  Speaker: Ian Badgley is an archaeologist with the National Capital Commission and a member of the Foundation’s board. Free lecture. Come early and enjoy the PPF’s summer exhibits. Light refreshments follow.

Old photographs, drawings and other archival sources indicate that a number of historical buildings and architectural features that once stood at Pinhey’s Point have disappeared over time.  One such building is a carriage or drive shed which, as shown in an 1890s photo, was built against the barn.  Public archaeological excavations conducted in August 2015 and Spring 2016 have revealed the remains of this building, as well as shed new light on an associated stone wall foundation. The results of the excavation and their interpretive value are presented and discussion.
