PHOTO ESSAY: Welcome to Stittsville (Part 1 of 4)

Welcome to Stittsville. Photo by Joe Newton.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Back in November I walked the length of Stittsville Main from Brown’s Independent to the library, and back. Usually I drive down this strip of road, but when I walked it I had plenty of time to take in all the details, good and bad. I thought that the old buildings would make for a great collection of photos, so I got in touch with Joe Newton.

Newton’s photos have been featured on our site before, including his photos of the old Bradley-Craig barn on Hazeldean Road. He tends to photograph a lot of old, decaying rural buildings just beyond the suburbs of Ottawa. You can see more of his photos on Instagram.

In this post, the first of four sets of photos of Stittsville Main, Newton has captured something beautiful among the tired, aging buildings along Stittsville’s main drag.

With the weather warming up, take some time to walk down the road yourself and see what you can discover.
