This suburban community, which is a part of Ottawa, first belonged to the settlers in the area that arrived in 1820s. These first settlers were Irish soldiers who lived in the original town site, now known as “Old Stittsville.” The community was incorporated as a police village in 1956 and became a full village in 1961. Stittsville has experienced a tremendous growth over the past 25 years as it transformed from an agricultural community of less than 500 people to a population of 20,000.
A fire in 1870, known as the “Great Carleton Fire,” destroyed almost everything in the community. This is known as one of the largest fires in the area surrounding over 250,000 acres. Only a few buildings were left standing -- everything else was destroyed. Another interesting thing to note is that Stittsville was one of the filming locations in a CBC TV Movie in 1988, titled “The Bobby Gimby Story.”
