Laurentians
In the early 1830s, a gentleman named James Forbes had this building constructed for commercial rental purposes. It was then expanded and transformed into a barracks to house an English garrison from 1837 to 1840, soldiers who fought in the Battle of Saint-Eustache in an attempt to crush the Patriote’s uprising. Enter the barracks and walk through the remains of 19th century history.
