History

Stittsville began as a small collection of houses and shops at the crossroads of what is now the Carp Road and Hazeldean Road. After a devastating fire in the 1870s, the village was rebuilt closer to the new railway line. By 1910 Stittsville was a busy rail centre, eventually becoming a village in 1961. In 2001, it amalgamated into the city of Ottawa.
