Lockmaster's House

photo by: Ken W. Watson, 1998

The exquisite stonework of the defensible lockmasters house at Davis Lock is clearly visible in this winter photograph. Built in 1842 it housed the lockmaster and his family. It was in continuous use as the home for the lockmaster of Davis Lock until the retirement of Lockmaster James Pyne in 1959. It remains today as the best preserved example of a defensible lockmasters house along the Rideau.
