Renfrew County Heritage Partners
Our mandate is to acquire, preserve and make accessible important historical documents relating to our local region.
Cradled between the Ottawa River and Algonquin Park, the Ottawa Valley is famous for its stunning outdoors and cultural and heritage riches.
Large scale paintings by professional mural artists are displayed throughout downtown core. These over-size canvases illustrate historic scenes and themes such as the arrival of Samuel de Champlain, logging in the Ottawa Valley, and the installation of commercial electric street lighting in 1884.
Our park was built to honour long time local resident and world renowned aircraft test pilot Janusz Zurakowski.
Zurakowski Park is located in downtown Barry's Bay, across from the Railway Station Museum.
