Heritage Montreal and its founding president, Phyllis Lambert , have requested that the Guy St. building which housed the Fulford Residence for elderly women for 131 years be given heritage protection by the provincial government.


“The Fulford Residence is unique in Montreal’s heritage,” the organization said Monday in a statement. With its 19th-century architecture and its longtime social and caring vocation, “the building stands witness to a bygone era in downtown’s west end where everything around it has changed dramatically.”

The joint request to classify the building under the Cultural Heritage Act was made in late December to provincial Culture and Communications Minister Nathalie Roy and “the ministry will analyze it,” Roy’s press attaché, Elizabeth Lemay, said Monday.

The handsome three-storey brick structure, set back from Guy St. below Ste-Catherine St., was built in 1859 for James Major, a government inspector of potash. The house, with its inviting veranda and expansive garden, was built on land that had belonged to notary and land surveyor Étienne Guy, for whom Guy St. is named.
