Description:The Soeurs de la Visitation d'Ottawa Monastery was founded in 1909, when the Soeurs de la Visitation bought the property from Ottawa newspaperman George Holland. The nuns immediately oversaw the construction of walls to close in the monastery from the outside world. Four wings were added and arranged around a central courtyard, a common feature in monasteries throughout Europe. The wall more or less hide the monastery away from public view. Construction of low rise condo complex is being built. Because of the historic value the monastery has, the City of Ottawa decided to give it heritage status. The monastery will be used as a conference center and as a restaurant.
