Sir-George-Étienne-Cartier National Historic Site

[History, Architecture]

A house, a history, a way of life. This historic site presents the life and work of Sir George-Étienne Cartier (1814-1873), one of the main Fathers of Confederation. The Cartier's family home has been meticulously restored according to the tastes and customs of the Montreal bourgeoisie around 1860. This house is a window onto the intimacy of a period.

  • A lawyer, politician and businessman, Cartier was a major figure in a number of crucial events in Canadian history. A man dedicated to the ideals of progress, he set about reforming civil institutions and the law through the political mechanisms at his disposal. His dream of making Montreal the trading-hub of British North America accelerated the development of railways and industrialization.
