Forget House, a nineteenth-century mansion, was constructed for the family of Senator Louis-Joseph Forget (1853-1911). His wife Maria Raymond-Forget (1859-1925) played a central role in choosing the Second Empire style of the building as well as its beautiful interior.  Officially recognized in 1974 as a monument historique by the Ministère des affaires culturelles du Québec, the building – along with the neighbouring Reid Wilson House and Mount Royal Club – represents one of the last ensembles of Square Mile houses on Sherbrooke Street.


The Macdonald Stewart Foundation and the Canadian Federation of Friends of Museums (CFFM) have partnered to open the Maison Louis-Joseph Forget to the public! Come join us on July 8th to learn more about these organizations, the Maison Louis-Joseph Forget and local Quebec history.
