7. Château Dufresne

Brothers Oscar and Marius Dufresne founded the town of Maisonneuve, formerly a suburb of Montreal (annexed in 1918) They built this mansion at the cost of 1 million dollars, a fortune at the time. The exterior was inspired by the Petit Trianon building in Versailles, France. Inside, the brothers commissioned artist Guido Nincheri to paint murals (Nincheri is also known for having painted a mural of Benito Mussolini in a Montreal church). Temporary exhibits cover a variety of subjects linked to  local history.
