One of Canada's Original
Mansions (Stewart Hall) Lots of Scottish history here! It was
originally called Mull Hall after Isle of Mull in Scotland
A drive by one of
Canada's original mansions - Stewart Hall. Originally known as Mull Hall
(named for Isle of Mull in Scottish Highlands). Charles Wesley MacLean
had this residence built in 1915–16 (a new widower - he had married
Doris Fulford who tragically died in childbirth as well as their baby).
The Fathers of Sainte-Croix acquired the residence for a nominal price.
In 1958, they were going to sell it to a real estate developed (and the
mansion would be transformed into an apartment high-rise). However,
fortunately Walter and May Stewart, neighbours, purchased the hall and
then donated it to the city of Pointe-Claire for one dollar. Stewart
Hall, comprised of thirty-five rooms, is now a beautiful cultural
center, art gallery and meeting place in the city of Pointe-Claire,
Quebec, in the West Island of Montreal. It is located on Lakeshore
Boulevard on the shores of Lac Saint-Louis (176 chemin du Bord-du-Lac
Lakeshore). Lac Saint-Louis flows into the Saint Lawrence Seaway.
