Heritage Databases

The Montréal heritage databases comprise hundreds of records, illustrated with period or contemporary documents, on the history and architectural or urban features of the city’s buildings, heritage districts, place names and much more. They are a way for everyone to appreciate Montréal’s rich heritage and contribute to preserving it.

Visitors can search for information using simple or more advanced tools and specific criteria. Four databases are now available: one on built heritage, one on municipal properties of heritage significance, one on the heritage of Old Montréal in detail, and one on the history of Montréal place names.
