Inscription.  

Le lot sur lequel s'élève la maison Marie-Joseph-Larchevêque fut concédé par les Jésuites à Jean-Baptiste Larchevêque en 1715. Dix ans plus tard, sa fille Marie-Joseph fait construire une maison en pierre avec une galerie couverte.

Devenu propriétaire de la maison, James Sinclair remplace en 1787 la galerie par un magasin d'un étage, lui aussi en pierre et recouvert d'un toit à croupe. Cette annexe complète l'entière occupation du lot donnant sur la rue Garneau et la côte de la Fabrique. En 1820, deux marchands ayant loué à John MacNider ajoutent un étage à la partie magasin, pour obtenir l'ensemble que l'on voit aujourd'hui.

La maison a conservé son apparence extérieure du XIXe siècle, ainsi qu'un escalier tournant, à l'intérieur, et la charpente du toit. Elle a été classée par la Commission des monuments historiques en 1963.

became the owner of the house and replaced the gallery with a one-story store, also of stone and covered with a hipped roof. This annex completed the entire occupation of the lot overlooking rue Garneau and the Côte de la Fabrique. In 1820, two merchants who rented from John MacNider added a floor to the store section, to get the exterior that we see today.

The house has retained its nineteenth century exterior appearance, as well as a spiral staircase on the inside and the roof structure. It was classified by the Commission of Historic Monuments in 1963.
