Bytown Paranormal will be returning this month to investigate the Symmes Museum in Aylmer Quebec.
It was in 1831 that Charles Symmes, founder of Aylmer (then the region’s administrative centre) and nephew of Philemon Wright, built this hotel to accommodate travellers coming by steamboat from Montreal. They were required to land in Wrightstown (Hull) to avoid the Chaudiere Falls. The passengers then travelled by stagecoach along the historic Aylmer Road to Symmes Inn before embarking on a steamboat to continue upriver.
Situated on the banks of Lac Deschênes and the Ottawa River, Symmes Inn is the centerpiece of Aylmer’s heritage, cultural and tourist district, which is the most significant and best preserved area of Gatineau’s historic buildings.
A symbol of pride for the people of the region, Symmes Inn was classified as an historic monument in 1975 and designated as a national historic site of Canada in 1976. After having served many a purpose throughout the years, the building was restored in 1978. In 2002, the City of Gatineau proclaimed the building a “heritage gem” par excellence. Since 2003, the inn has housed the Symmes Inn Museum. *Thanks to Joe Houston
