  *One of the most prestigious private clubs in the Montreal area and founded by a group of Montreal businessmen, the Club started in 1926 on the estate of George Stephen, co-founder and first President of the Canadian Pacific Railway. The house, built between 1880 and 1883, is located in the heart of downtown Montreal, in an area known as the Golden Square Mile, once the wealthiest residential neighbourhood in Canada. It is one of the last intact mansions of the area and one of the most beautiful examples of late Victorian Renaissance architecture in North America./system/images/000/000/127/BSH194_Mount_Stephen_Hall.jpg___default.jpeg
