Heritage Plaque

Tuesday, August 16, 2016|Comments Off on Heritage Plaque

On July 25, 2016 the City of Westmount was presented with a commemorative plaque from the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada. This is in recognition of Westmount’s rich and diverse stock of older buildings in various architectural styles, especially from the Victorian and post-Victorians eras. Local MP Marc Garneau, a Westmount resident, made the presentation to Mayor Peter Trent. The bronze plaque will be installed at Westmount City Hall. (Photo: Parks Canada)
