Open House Event Launch: “Cup of Tea on Wednesdays”

It has been a good start for the summer season of The Canadian Heritage of Quebec and now we want to open the Hurtubise House to the public for our Cup of Tea on Wednesdays event.

Through this activity, The Canadian Heritage of Quebec wants to invite the citizens of Westmount to come and mark six decades of their implication in the conservation of heritage sites in Quebec. The Cup of Tea on Wednesdays’ event will take place at the Hurtubise House, the head-office of our organization, located at 563 Côte-Saint-Antoine Road (corner Victoria) in Westmount. Guests will have an opportunity to discover the Hurtubise House, visit the exhibition which is dedicated to the Hurtubise family and also the heirloom vegetables garden. They will be greeted at the entrance with the necessary information and will be free afterwards to explore this historic property, classified heritage site by the government of Quebec in 2004.

This open house will allow the public to discover the Hurtubise House, the oldest house in Westmount, in a newperspective. Guests can enjoy tea and cookies while visiting the exhibition, the yesteryear décor of the house and its flower gardens. The open house will take place on three Wednesdays in summer: 20thof July, 3rdof August and 17thof August. Visiting hours will be from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. and entrance fees will be at $5 per person, including drinks and a snack.
