Kim Martin Elder This corner looks familiar…😀

Jeremy Stinson-– If I was informed correctly, (it was before my time) Johanson Construction built the first few homes, and had already set prices… I want o say all the homes South of Brown street had to be blasted to get their basements in. Johansson went under and Iber took over.


Linda Gallipeau-Johnston I think I told the story of Mr. Kettles blasting out on Pattie Drive when on one blast the stone absolutely rained down on the existing houses and all the men were out having quite a hee haw at what just happened – quality you say!!!!

Photos–Mississippi Manor–The Ottawa Journal
Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
Fri, Sep 24, 1976 – Page 51 and the other picture is 2017



Ray Paquette The late Mayor Brian Costello once explained to me the development problems experienced by the original builder and how the Town had to take over the completion of the services to the sub-division and the sale of the remaining lots to Iber Construction of Stittsville from whom I purchased a home. Many of my neighbours living in what was referred to as “Johanssen Homes” purchased their homes from the Town in various states of completion and finished the homes. Perhaps some of your correspondents can add more to the story of “the Manor”.


Tim McIntyre-Ours was built by Iber Homes– And we formed a committee to obtain a grant from the province to build the park



Shannon Strike That was a great place to grow up


Mary Ann Gagnon My parents (the Dawsons) lived at 7 Brown St. In the same model pictured in the flyer.

Linda Gallipeau-Johnston Mary Ann – are we talking Principle Dawson – came on board at the school 63?

About lindaseccaspina

Linda Knight Seccaspina was born in Cowansville, Quebec about the same time as the wheel was invented and the first time she realized she could tell a tale was when she got caught passing her smutty stories around in Grade 7 at CHS by Mrs. Blinn. When Derek "Wheels" Wheeler from Degrassi Jr. High died in 2010, Linda wrote her own obituary. Some people said she should think about a career in writing obituaries. Before she laid her fingers to a keyboard, Linda owned the eclectic store Flash Cadilac and Savannah Devilles in Ottawa from 1976-1996. After writing for years about things that she cared about or pissed her off she finally found her calling. Is it sex drugs and rock n' roll you might ask? No, it is history. Seeing that her very first boyfriend in Grade 5 (who she won a Twist contest with in the 60s) is the head of the Brome Misissiquoi Historical Society and also specializes in local history back in Quebec, she finds that quite funny. She writes every single day and is also a columnist for Hometown News and Screamin's Mamas. She is a volunteer for the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum, an admin for the Lanark County Genealogical Society Facebook page, and a local guest speaker. She has been now labelled an historian by the locals which in her mind is wrong. You see she will never be like the iconic local Lanark County historian Howard Morton Brown, nor like famed local writer Mary Cook. She proudly calls herself The National Enquirer Historical writer of Lanark County, and that she can live with. Linda has been called the most stubborn woman in Lanark County, and has requested her ashes to be distributed in any Casino parking lot as close to any Wheel of Fortune machine as you can get. But since she wrote her obituary, most people assume she's already dead. Linda has published six books, "Menopausal Woman From the Corn," "Cowansville High Misremembered," "Naked Yoga, Twinkies and Celebrities," "Cancer Calls Collect," "The Tilted Kilt-Vintage Whispers of Carleton Place," and "Flashbacks of Little Miss Flash Cadilac." All are available at Amazon in paperback and Kindle. Linda's books are for sale on Amazon or at Wisteria · 62 Bridge Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada, and at the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum · 267 Edmund Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada--Appleton Museum-Mississippi Textile Mill and Mill Street Books and Heritage House Museum and The Artists Loft in Smith Falls.
