Date: From May 18, 2017 to June 6, 2017
Time: Thursdays and Tuesdays
Location: McGill College and De Maisonneuve Street
Starting in front of Royal Victoria College—the three circuits explore various little-known downtown neighbourhoods that played a key role in the evolution of the city’s core. From the “McGill ghetto”, a residential district with its fascinating and varied architecture, to the vast University campus, one of downtown’s driving forces, and this area’s modernist architecture, each of these circuits reveals a distinct period, from the end of the 19th century to the beginning of the 21st.
Date: From June 1st
Time: Every Wednesdays from 2pm to 4pm
Location: The Church of St Andrew and St Paul
Address: 3415 Redpath Street
Open Church Wednesdays: Tours will be available from 2 to 4 p.m. every Wednesday from March 1 until June. Led by Don Kelly (coordinator of last summer’s Open Church initiative), the tours will feature the history and architecture of the building and the significant works of art that it contains — in the context of a vibrant congregation offering a place of worship and refuge in the midst of a busy city. The meeting place is under the bell in the Memorial Tower.
