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 191516 (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.
