Historical Society of Ottawa
Group From 3/6/1898
Formed initially as the Women’s Canadian Historical Society of Ottawa, renamed in 1956.
From their website: "To celebrate Ottawa’s centenary in 1926, the Society unveiled a memorial to Lieutenant-Colonel John By, the Royal Engineer responsible for the construction of the Rideau Canal, and the founder of Bytown. A replica of his house, which had been destroyed by fire years earlier, was also built at Major’s Hill Park."
