The Montreal City Hall, Hotel de Ville in French, is situated along the Rue Notre-Dame in Old Montreal, the historic part of Montreal, Quebec. This building was built between 1872 and 1878.

The Montreal City Hall, called the Hotel de Ville in French, can be found along the Rue Notre-Dame in Old Montreal, the historic part of Montreal in Quebec. It was built between 1872 and 1878 by Henri-Maurice Perrault and Alexander Cowper Hutchison in what is called the 'Second Empire' style. This was a very popular style during the Victorian era, and it uses elements that were popular during the Second French Empire, which was when Napoleon III ruled from 1852 to 1870.

This City Hall is part of Old Montreal, which is the oldest area in the city and is visited by many tourists every year to see the historical buildings and witness the classic architecture.

In March 1922 a huge fire broke out in the building and gutted the entire place. Only the outer wall was left standing and many of the historical records, which were kept in the building, were lost forever. ... continue below the picture...

... Architect Louis Parant was hired to re-build the City Hall, and decided to use a new method of a steel cage interior to help the building stay up.

Today this building is a National Historic Site of Canada, meaning that it has been designated by the Minister of the Environment to be a site that is important to Canadian history and needs to be preserved for generations to enjoy and learn from.
