In the late 1800s and early 1900s, the banks of the Rideau Canal in downtown Ottawa were dotted with wooden boathouses. Among them, at the point that Queen Elizabeth Driveway and Fifth Avenue meet, was an impressive three-storey, turreted frame building — the boathouse owned by the Rideau Aquatic Club. This was the original name of the Rideau Canoe Club. The foundations of the now-defunct marina are still visible at low water.
