The Reservoir of Outremont

ReservoirOutremont1950 ModifOn a vast property situated on the Côte-Sainte-Catherine road, in Outremont, the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary (SNJM) purchase a farm in 1889, and in 1905, build there the boarding school Pensionnat du Saint-Nom-de-Marie.

AUne L222M.5 VueAerienneReservoir1960 bSince this agricultural region welcome more and more wealthy families, the Montreal Water and Power acquires, in 1898, a portion of the land of the sisters to build, in 1913-1914, a important open sky drinking water reservoir (Réservoir Bellingham).

In 1924, the SNJM Congregation built, on the slope of the Mount Royal, their third mother-house and their novitiate. During the 1930's, Outremont grows, bringing the building there of the school and the church Saint-Germain. In 1959, the SNJM erect, in front of the reservoir, the Institut Jésus-Marie (present Pavillon Marie-Victorin of the Université de Montréal), and, behind the tank, the École de musique Vincent-IJMCouvertureReservoir1964d’Indy (present Faculté de musique of the Université de Montréal). In 1964, the Claude-Champagne Concert Hall opens his doors. That same year, the reservoir is covered with a turfed roof.

In 2009, the City of Montreal allows the installation of various sports grounds on the Réservoir Bellingham.
