Keys to History

The Montreal Hunt was formed in about 1826, and is the oldest such club still extant in North America. John Forsyth, a Scot who emigrated from Aberdeen in 1790, was the founder and first Master of the Hunt. The first formal headquarters were built in 1882 by the new Master of the Hunt, Albert Baumgarten. This complex on the corner of Delorimier and Sherbrooke Streets, included kennels, stables and two-storey brick clubhouse with a ballroom and swimming pool.
