2. Louis-Joseph Papineau National Historic Site of Canada. Louis-Joseph Papineau National Historic Site of Canada was designated in 1968 because:
- this place is importantly associated with the most active and important period in Papineau’s life when he was the leader of the Parti canadien and one of the leading figures in the political unrest which led to the Rebellion of 1837; and,
- it represents a successful amalgamation of various stylistic approaches including a French Regime building tradition overlaid with a Neo-Classical and Palladian architectural vocabulary.
