SInce our last two newsletters were distributed electronically to our members rather than in printed form, we do not have any printed copies available for sale. However, anyone wanting one can join the WHA for the year at the discounted rate (see below) and will then receive an electronic copy of the current newsletter. The previous one can be sent electronically on request (send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org).
An enlarged issue in February of The Westmount Historian, the
newsletter of the Westmount Historical Association, is dedicated to
the Goode property. The publication is sent to all WHA members (see
‘Membership’ on this website) and will be available to download from the website in
pdf. format as of next year.
Westmount recently became the first Quebec municipality to apply the province’s Cultural Heritage Act to the interior of a heritage building. On November 20, 2020, Westmount City Council designated the privately-owned Goode property at 178 Côte St. Antoine Road a heritage property. By-Law 1552 will protect the distinguishing features, both exterior and interior, of this unique property. The 1840s house’s exterior has been protected since the late 1980s, based on its Category 1* classification. Elements of its interior are now also safeguarded by the provincial act which gives municipalities the power to confer protection to sites within their borders. The Goode House landscaping, which is a reflection of 19th century suburban garden design, has also been included in this designation.
Since we have had to curtail our activities during the pandemic, the WHA board of Directors has voted to offer a 50% discount on membership fees for 2021 only.
