During the last years, the Youville Place has been the theatre of major archeological searches. Located between Saint-Pierre and McGill streets, facing the former first fire station, now the home of the Montreal Historical Centre, the Youville Place is considered has the starting point of Ville-Marie. First, the Fort Ville-Marie is built, and, some decades later, the Castle of de Callière is built nearby.
Parliament of United Canada
At the western extremity of the Place, we could formerly find the Sainte-Anne market, established in 1832. Then, twelve years later, the first Parliament of United Canada will be the new tenant of this building. Incidentally, major laws will be voted there, including the one establishing the responsible government in 1848. But, the next year, a major fire will completely destroy the building. Both parliamentary libraries will be leveled. Archeological artifacts found during the searches are now on display at the Esplanade de la Cité, a series of underground galleries that will soon be open to visitors. These archeological remains will help to better understand the city foundation and will surely increase traffic in the sector.
