An old stone house on a grass-land .

The Jarry-dit-Henrichon House 

Previously known as the Côte-des-Neiges house, this French-style stone house is situated at 5085 Decelles Avenue. Its date of construction is uncertain (1713, 1751 or 1781), but it was classified an historic monument in 1957. The Lacombe family lived there for many years, followed by the architect Gratton Thompson. It was rebuilt slightly to the east of its original location when the Côte-des-Neiges and Decelles intersection was redesigned in 1956-57. Today it is owned by the Fabrique Notre-Dame and it is soon to become an interpretive centre on mourning.
