Notre Dame Basillica Montreal, Canada

The parish church of Notre-Dame was built between 1672 and 1682. A cross is planted to designate the future emplacement of the church on June 29, 1672 and the next day are laid the first five stones. By 1824 the congregation had completely outgrown the church, and James O'Donnell, an Irish-American Protestant from New York, was commissioned to design the Notre-Dame Basilica. The church was demolished in 1830 and the bell tower in 1843. Foundations from the original Notre-Dame Church lie under Place d'Armes, and were unearthed during the square's 2009-2011 renovations.
