|Facility:||The Fur Trade at Lachine National Historic Site|
|Description:||Located to the west of the Island of Montreal along Lake Saint-Louis, The Fur Trade at Lachine National Historic Site testifies to the apogee of the fur industry in the Montreal region in the 18th and early 19th centuries. The old stone warehouse dates from 1803. Alexander Gordon, ex-clerk and stockholder of the North West Company had it built to store trading goods and furs. In 1833, the warehouse became the property of the Hudson's Bay Company. Lachine occupied a strategic position on the fur route as a departure and arrival point for trading expeditions. It was also an important centre for storing the Montreal merchants' furs and for trading goods. Today, this unique warehouse houses an exhibition that enables visitors to relive the Montreal fur epic.
