Keys to History

Created in 1884, Viger Square lost its role in 1889 as a public garden (with greenhouses) in favour of Logan (Lafontaine) Park and then became the counterpart in the east end of the city of Dominion Square. It was located in front of the Canadian Pacific Viger hotel and station, while Windsor Station and the hotel of the same name were on Dominion Square. Viger Square was south of the St. Hubert/ St. Denis axis, which, in 1910, was still the stronghold of the Francophone upper classes. Outremont would later take its place.
