With more designated heritage buildings than any other Ontario community similarly sized, Merrickville is a clear window into the past. The Victorian era is alive and near on streets bordered by stone buildings all to be enjoyed from the patio of one of the many local restaurants, including several British pubs.
Ideally-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, the Village of Merrickville and the surrounding rural area of Wolford, loves to celebrate its history and culture and heartily invites everyone to join in! During the summer, festivals enliven Merrickville’s streets with art, crafts, antiques and a centuries-old agriculture fair which maintains the local agricultural traditions stemming back to the 1700s.
