Carlington: The History of the area: ( wikipedia)

First settled in the early 1920s. It contains less than 435 older pre-1945 homes. Some 2000 dwellings were built from 1945 to 1960. The houses built in the time period immediately following World War II were meant for returning veterans and are therefore known as "war homes" or "veteran homes". Many of the street names in the neighbourhood also reflect this military heritage (e.g. Viscount Ave, Admiral Ave, General Ave, Marshall Ave, Veteran Ave, Crerar Ave.).

From 1961 to 1970, 1440 homes and apartments were built and from 1971 to 1980, another 1380. After 1981, the construction of new dwellings sharply dropped to less than 400 for the remainder of the 20th century. Today there are new homes being built as some veterans' homes are demolished.

The neighbourhood is home to the Royal Ottawa HospitalMerivale Road is Carlington's traditional main street and goes through the centre of residential Carlington.
