Société dʼhistoire de Pointe-Saint-Charles and Société historique de Saint-Henri
L'architecture des casernes de pompiers de l’arrondissement du Sud-Ouest de Montréal ("The Architecture of the Fire Stations in Montreal's South-West District") provide a fascinating historical and architectural panorama. The Société dʼhistoire de Pointe-Saint-Charles, in association with the Société historique de Saint-Henri, is pleased to share this rich heritage with the general public.
There are still nine fire stations in South-West Montreal, four of which are still in operation and five that were converted for cultural purposes. A dozen other fire stations have also disappeared.
Drawn from a study of architectural historian Gilles Lauzon, this self-guided tour can be done whenever you want. To do this, the historical society has prepared documents: a circuit map and an audio guide made up of ten mp3 files. If you do not have an mp3 player, the full text of the tour is also available.
Please visit the SHPSC's website to download the documents and find out more about this tour.
