At home with George-Étienne Cartier

George-Étienne Cartier, one of the fathers of Canadian Confederation (1867), lived in both halves of this house at different times. It was later converted into a museum commemorating his life and times. The 1837 façades were remodelled after his death with the addition of a false mansard roof.
