Embark on a journey through time with our exclusive tour of the historic Maison Reid-Wilson!

Step into the elegance of the Square Mile houses, dating back to the late 19th century, and discover one of the few remaining mansions along Sherbrooke Street. Commissioned for reconstruction in 1901 by James Reid Wilson, this architectural gem underwent a transformation by the renowned Buffalo architect, Richard A. Waite. Marvel at the eclectic blend of Italianate, Romanesque Revival, and Gothic Revival design elements seamlessly integrated into its façade.

Designated as a historic monument by the Government of Quebec in 1974, Maison Reid-Wilson stands as a testament to Canada's industrial and financial development. Immerse yourself in its rich history as you explore its conservatory and coach house, rare treasures from a bygone era. Join us on this captivating walking tour and uncover the stories that shaped the illustrious past of Sherbrooke Street's Square Mile.
