We have not been to the property yet so our photos are limited.

 

The property enjoys 43 acres on the easterly line of the city.

This property has never been built on and there are some nice mature trees on the property and with careful planning some of them can remain and be incorporated in a landscaping plan when you build on it. As you can see from the topographic mapping that the property is hilly by nature with an elevation slightly higher than the city centre itself. This makes for a spectacular view overlooking the city and  the gorgeous Montreal River.

 

After conducting a search of the original patent we discovered that the land was granted back in Oct of 1940 as a mining claim.

A LITTLE ABOUT MATACHEWAN-

Matachewan began as a trading post of the Hudson's Bay Co, called Fort Matachewan, located about 8 kilometres (5.0 mi) north of the present town site. It consisted only of a large depot and stores, with a church added later on. The local First Nations, who traded their furs here, would camp along the Montreal River but not settle permanently.

Jack Davidson discovered gold in 1916 and teamed up with Weldy Young in 1930 to start the Young Davidson Mines. Sam Otisse staked a claim next to Davidson in 1917, which became the Matachewan Consolidated Mines. Alex Mosher staked claims which became the Ashley Gold Mine (1932-1936).[3]

The impetus to the town's growth came in the 1920s when mineral deposits, such as gold, copper, and molybdenite, were found in the area. From then on it experienced boom and bust cycles of typical mining towns, depending on the swings in commodity prices, but its economy has gradually shifted to forestry and tourism.
