"Old Customs House (1836)" Architectural/Culture (Old and New) Tip by yooperprof

  this old house
by yooperprof

Favorite thing: This old stone building on the western end of the Rue St. Paul stands much as it did when it was constructed 170 years ago. Moreover, this spot (Place Royale) was also the location of the first fort in the region, Ville-Marie. Appropriately, perhaps, the Customs House now serves as offices and gift shop for the nearby Archeological Museum "Pointe-a-Calliere".
