Louis-Joseph Papineau National Historic Site
Please note that the Louis-Joseph Papineau National Historic Site is closed to visitors.
Once the residence from the days when Papineau was at the peak of his political career, this building in Old Montreal bears witness to one of the most troubled periods in Quebec and Canadian history. On November 6, 1837, the house was attacked by the Doric Club, an Anglophone paramilitary organization. Fortunately, the attackers failed to get inside.
Although the building is closed to the public, you can still admire its beautifully restored façade on Bonsecours Street.

The only Victorian-style house open to the public in the city, Sir George-Étienne Cartier’s home in Old Montreal offers an opportunity to become better acquainted with one of the Fathers of Confederation.
Today, there is little sign of the military occupation - after the garrison departed, the building was renovated and served as a hotel for travellers. Since 1940, it has housed the Argenteuil Regional Museum.
