"Chateau Ramezay" Château Ramezay - Historic Site and Museum of Montreal Tip by Skibbe

 
 

This was built in the 18th century by the 11th governor of Montreal who missed the comforts of France. It was apparently beyond his means and changed ownership numerous times. Benjamin Franklin stayed here while visiting Canada in 1776. It is now a museum with some interesting exhibits on the city's history.
