Golden Square Mile Beyond Its Facades

The Museum invites you to take part in this brand new historical tour through the heart of an iconic downtown neighbourhood: the Golden Square Mile.

Discover how the district evolved into the hub for arts, culture, education and business we know today. Learn about the heritage homes that were once the property of the city’s elite and hear stories about the neighbourhood’s leading figures and lesser-known residents—the owners and servants who lived and worked there. Find out more about the ties between the Indigenous peoples and the site on the slopes of Mount-Royal.

This 90-minute outdoor guided tour was developed with the collaboration of McGill University’s School of Continuing Studies, its Department of History and Classical Studies, and its Montreal History Group.
