[ Wright Tavern, Brewing History since 1808 ]
# Structural remains of Wright’s Tavern
We would like to thank Theia Partners and Dream Unlimited for agreeing to ensure the archaeological evaluation of the structural remains of Wright’s Tavern, located in the footprint of building No 3 of the E.B. Eddy industrial complex, following the lead of the recent report by Mr. Rick Henderson. These ancient walls — still standing — bear witness to the birth of the Ottawa Valley’s first permanent settlement built by Philemon Wright, a man who was recognized by the Government of Canada as a national historical figure in 1976.
Based on the findings and insights that will be drawn from the evaluations and expert assessments obtained under the authority of Theia Partners and Dream Unlimited, we are already expressing our support for the preservation, conservation and enhancement of this highly important archaeological heritage. In our opinion, each of the stakeholders involved in the community, including regional bodies, will have to consider sharing the responsibilities with regards to the chain processing of the archaeological information at this specific site. After which, its interpretation will be conveyed to the public.
# Philemon Wright National Fluvial Museum
On our part, the Philemon Wright National Fluvial Museum project will be a concrete financial lever to facilitate the mission of Theia Partners and Dream Unlimited for preserving and enhancing the industrial heritage and transhistorical features of the Chaudière Falls site. This entire area, designated as the “heart of the Capital” by the National Capital Commission (NCC), tells the tale of a place where collective mutual aid and fraternization took place for all three of the founding peoples of Canada.
# Jos. Montferrand would have set foot there !
Theia Partners and Dream Unlimited have in their hands a historical treasure that will certainly become a source of collective pride, and one of your main attractions.
