We will build Brick Houses in Rideau Heights For $900 to $1200!


Study the Reasons why Smith’s Falls will be a Railroad City. Agents Wanted in Every Town. Come in and Learn About It.

Why was our office crowded for hours last Saturday night and this week?  Why did the police force in vain endeavour to keep back the. crowd, and why was the whole town talking “Rideau Heights”.

Simply because they realized we were offering bargains in Real Estate never before heard of in Smith’s Falls, and they had just been made aware of the true value of Real Estate in a town that every citizen of Smith’s Falls knows and tells everybody else, is the most progressive town between Peterboro and Montreal.

They wanted to secure some of these bargains in Smith’s Falls property  for the inhabitants of Smith’s Falls, but they were not alone aware of these Real Estate bargains. The large orders from Ottawa and Montreal were evidence to the fact that “Rideau Heights” lots at $33.00, $44.00, $55.00, $66.00 and $77.00.  Rideau Heights was after all only nine minutes’ walk to the property from the centre of the business district.

They offered brick houses in Rideau Heights in the price range of $900 to $1200. A new railway wonder of the 20th Century would be operating in a few months Smith’s Falls  would have three great Railroads before long and the  Kingston & Ottawa Electric Line and was just surveyed to operate between Ottawa and Kingston.

It was some of the nicest property you ever stood upon they said. Terms were easy and there was no interest. Quality and Nearness This property is high, dry and very desirable for building with sidewalks, sewers, electric light and water up to “the property now.

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.
