The Hurtubise House is the oldest building in Westmount. It was built in 1739 for Jean Hurtubise, son of Louis Hurtubise who, in 1699, bought the land located on Côte-Saint-Antoine Road, at the corner of Victoria Avenue. Six generations of the Hurtubise family lived in this old house until Leopold Hurtubise, the last of homeowners, died in 1955. In 1956, the Hurtubise House became the first property which CHQ saved from demolition and its protection is now ensured indefinitely.
In 2004, the land and residence were classified as a heritage site by the Ministère de la Culture et des Communications (MCC). In 2005, CHQ undertook the restoration of this historic house in two phases. The first was the restoration of the roof, chimneys and second floor; the second phase, conducted in 2012, resulted in the restoration of the west side stone wall, the front gallery and the ground floor of the house. This project was mainly funded by CHQ and has received financial support from the MCC and the City of Montreal.
