Pinhey's Point is an 88-acre historic site and estate located on the scenic shores of the Ottawa River. The estate, "Horaceville" was the home of Hamnett Kirkes Pinhey, a British settler who was a leading member of Upper Canada. The Pinhey family lived in the home until the early 1970s. This is a great place for boaters, picnickers and people who just want to enjoy the green space. Tours of the house and the ruins of Old St. Mary's Church are available upon request.

Pinhey’s Point features a number of exhibits throughout the house. Visitors can learn about the life of the Hon. Hamnett Kirkes Pinhey, his family and property, his neighbours in the surrounding March Township, and about 19th century domestic life and arts.
