Rideau Hall – Ottawa, Ontario
Having completed the construction of the Rideau Canal locks in Ottawa, renowned Scottish stonemason, Thomas McKay, began to build his personal residence in 1838. Now known as Rideau Hall, it was built in the Regency style. It now serves as the Governor General of Canada’s residence.
During the restoration of the Mappin Wing, many architectural features were removed and re-carved, including pediment springers and cornice stones.
