    About The Mount Stephen Club
    The George Stephen house is a historic residence built by prominent businessman and philanthropist George Stephen in the early 1880s. George Stephen was once the president of the Bank of Montreal and the leading figure behind the creation of the Canadian Pacific Railway. In 1880, the construction of the house began with the design of William Tutin Thomas a notable architect in the late 19th century. A unique style that blends Victorian and Renaissance styling, this unique work of art was built with grandeur and opulence in mind. It features a stone exterior with intricate detailing and a multitude of unique decorative elements. The interior showcases exquisite woodwork, stained glass windows and fine craftsmanship. The décor is based on art, literature and Greek mythology, showcased through fantastic stained-glass windows. The establishment changed hands in 1888 when Mr. Stephen left the country to become Lord Mount Stephen. He sold his home to his brother-in-law Mr. Robert Meighen, who lived in the property until 1924 before selling it due to the economic crisis following the war. A group of businessmen, Noah Timmins, J.H. Maher and J.S. Dohan, took over the establishment and founded the private business club for men, The Mount Stephen Club, which is named in memory of George Stephen.
