It is in this building that the City of Verdun was founded in 1876 and the Knights of Columbus were the last residents.
As I have mentioned before, it is a real tragedy that this historical building was permitted to be demolished to be replaced by a car wash.
I doubt that today such an important historical building would be alowed to be demolished as the population is more concerned in these matters as compared to 1954. Thank god that the Maison St Dizier was not destroyed (Old Stone House) wich is the oldest house in Verdun (built 1710). I have added this photo to my album no. 29.
Please Note: Edward Wilson was the mayor of Verdun in 1954.
