More about

Quebec House was the boyhood home for 11 years of General James Wolfe (1727–1759). It was bought in 1913 by Joseph Bowles Learmont of Montreal. He had been looking for an appropriate property to serve as a memorial to honour Wolfe’s role in the creation of Canada. He died a year later, but made his intentions clear in his will, to which his widow gave effect by presenting it to the National Trust in 1918. Memorabilia of the British hero, including copies of the famous painting by Benjamin West of ‘The Death of Wolfe’ (1770) in Quebec, abound.
