Kids can learn about the history of Montreal
If the tearing down of the Redpath House has you wondering about other historical landmarks in the city, Héritage Montréal has just the activity for and your family.
Every Sunday, starting May 25 and ending June 15, the non-profit organization, which fought for the preservation of Redpath House, will host Little Burgundy: On the traces of the village of Ste. Cunégonde. The event is a hunt for the long-gone town of Ste. Cunégonde, where children (ages 5 to 12) and adults will follow a series of clues to find the town that may not be so lost after all.
The premise is to discover and learn about the benchmarks of the city, ones that are often under our noses but obscured by the metropolis. The trek begins at 10 a.m., rain or shine, and costs $10 for adults and $5 for kids.
Participants are expected to walk a distance of about one kilometre, with a departure point at the corner St. Antoine and Georges-Vanier, close to the Georges-Vanier metro station.
