Every community has a past, a present, and a future. The early settlers, and those who followed, left us a rich past. Their legacy is seen in Aylmer's impressive public buildings, splendid stone mansions, elegant brick houses, charming wood frame homes and solidly crafted log cabins.
Today we face the challenge of protecting this heritage while contributing to our community's further development. Our efforts to maintain our properties and the decisions that Ville de Gatineau makes will help preserve this legacy for future generations.
This part of Aylmer, the Old Village, dates back to the mid-19th century, when it was the commercial and administrative hub of the entire Outaouais region!
