MONTREAL, June 25 /CNW Telbec/ - What do John Molson, David Thompson,
Honore Beaugrand, and Toe Blake have in common? They are all buried at
historic Mount Royal Cemetery, which has been designated as a National
Historic Site. Take a walk through the pages of history with the brand new
Mount Royal Cemetery guide that includes a listing of 100 people who have
shaped the heritage of our city and country. This detailed guide features a
map with locations and descriptions of famous Montrealers including Mordecai
Richler, Anna Leonowens, Sir John Abbott and Howie Morenz.
With the summer weather fast approaching, it is the perfect time to bring
the family and learn more about our history in a beautiful garden setting.
Mount Royal Cemetery also features over 100 species of birds and trees as well
as 165 acres of lush landscape. It's the perfect summer outing and it's free.
Just stop in the cemetery office at the main entrance and ask for your
copy of Mount Royal Cemetery: Discovery of an Historical Nature. And if you
are a student or teacher, consider a tour with your class, whether it's
elementary school or university. With any group larger than 25 people, we can
provide a tour guide.
The Friends of Mount Royal Cemetery is pleased to offer this new guide.
Our mission is to help preserve and promote the natural historic treasure that
the cemetery has become since its founding in 1852.
