The building’s former owners, the Sheahan family, were among the visitors. They expressed their pleasure with the new look of the house.
The opening of the Vietnam House to the public is part of an annual programme to honour heritage buildings in Ottawa.
This year, more than 120 historically, culturally and functionally significant buildings opened their doors on June 6 – 7.
The annual architectural event has drawn nearly 800,000 visitors since its launch in 2002.
