Built in 1895, this structure was originally the pumping station for city water to the residents of Hintonburg. When that town was later annexed by Ottawa, it was converted to a residence and gatehouse for the Lemieux Island Filtration Plant which opened in 1932. Later designated a heritage property in 1987, sadly in 1989 the building burned.
