Lachine Historical Society
Founded in 1991 by a group of concerned citizens, this not-for-profit institution and official member of the Fédération des sociétés d'histoire du Québec dedicates its time to putting its mission statement into practice: to promote and showcase Lachine’s wealth of historical heritage.
To do so, the Society offers monthly conferences touching on a variety of topics. Presented from October to May, these conferences are given either by members of the Historical Society itself or by guest speakers. Occasionally, the LHS also organizes guided tours.
Regularly published in the Lachine & Dorval edition of Le Messager newspaper for Lachine's 350th anniversary, the historical capsules, written by Hélène Lamarche, Honorary President of the Societe d'histoire de Lachine, have been compiled into a collection. You can obtain a paper version of this collection by contacting the Société.
