Earlier this year the account book of Bellows & Stacey’s store that operated at Nepean Point from 1824-1828 was discovered in a museum in Vermont. It has much to tell us about the local economy and the earliest settlers on both sides of the Ottawa River. And it’s coming home.
Bruce Elliott, Professor of History at Carleton University, tells the story of this newly-discovered piece of Ottawa’s history.
