Facility:Carillon Canal National Historic Site of Canada
Description:Built between 1830 and 1837, the Carillon Barracks were erected during the construction of the first Ottawa River canal system, a project triggering a regional economic boom. The construction of this building was probably undertaken in order to mitigate a lack ofhousing as the site became a stopover. During the events of 1837 and 1838, the British army requisitioned the building and made the first renovations to it. Between 1840 and 1936, the building was again used as a civil housing resource, as a hotel. Since then, the building houses the museum of the Historical Society of Argenteuil County.
