The city of Pointe-Claire will move ahead with plans to declare the waterfront area that inspired the municipality’s name a heritage site.

On Dec. 3, Pointe-Claire council approved a notice of motion to create a heritage site in the area around the windmill along the shore of Lake St-Louis. The land forms a point that juts into the lake, providing a wide view of the water and surrounding shoreline.

The designated area would include the iconic Pointe-Claire windmill (1709-1710), St-Joachim Church (1881-85), the presbytery (1848 and its 1913 expansion), the Sisters of the Congregation of Notre Dame convent (1867) and cemetery land surrounding the church.
