Louis-Joseph Forget House

Architectural in Downtown

This late-19th-century Victorian mansion has a pleasing symmetry, with a focus on its wrought-iron, oak doors with fine iron grilles created at Montréal's Clendinning foundry. It was built for the first francophone chairman of the Montréal Stock Exchange, Louis-Joseph Forget. Forget was also a founding member of the Mont-Royal Club and ran the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR).
