Overview
More
Step into this Regency cottage built in 1849 and tour the house, its English garden and gorgeous rose beds. The Maison Henry-Stuart is one of the few remaining examples of a characteristic style of residential architecture popular in the 19th century. Today, this classified heritage property is operated by Action patrimoine and has been designated a National Historic Site of Canada. Envelop yourself in the refined ambiance typical of Quebec bourgeois society in the early 1900s. The authentic interior reflects the way of life of the Stuart sisters, whose home it was from 1918 to 1987. Before you leave, join us for tea on the wide veranda, a peaceful interlude in the heart of the lively Montcalm district.

En route to the Musee we came across this gem of a house complete with original furnishings steeped in the history of a middle class Quebec family. After a comprehensive tour guided by the excellent Marie-Soleil we had iced tea and lemon cake.

I love historic house tours, and this is one of the better ones I've ever done. The house itself is a perfect example of a 19c Quebec-style cottage built for wealthy people to live just outside the city--but the city has grown to encompass it,...More
