The F.-A. Gendron House
111 Champlain Street

Basile Carrière built this Second Empire style house in 1890. It would serve mainly as a luxurious home but, for several years, it also housed an office of the Quebec Ministry of Lands, Forests and Fisheries, and then medical offices. It became the residence of Ferdinand-Ambroise Gendron, Crown lands agent, wood and mining products merchant, mayor of Hull in 1903, and representative in the Quebec National Assembly from 1904 to 1916. Doctors G.-H. Bergeron and Pierre Bégin lived here and had their medical offices here until 1974. In an unfortunate renovation, the house was converted into the chapel and presbytery of the Notre-Dame-de-Grâce parish, when the parish church burned down. Since 1982, a law firm has occupied the former home.
