Manotick (N 83)
Located on Long Island, the name is derived from the Algonquin word meaning "island in the river". In 1860 Moss Kent Dickinson opened a sawmill and gristmill, attracting many families from Ottawa to this lovely pastoral setting. The gristmill is located in Dickinson Square across from Moss Kent's house and is now operated as a tourist attraction and, along with the village's craft market, entertainment, many lovely estate homes and artists' studios, provides the visitor with delightful walking tours.
