Château Ramezay: looking for volunteers

The Château Ramezay in Old Montreal was built in 1705, and it was the very first building designated an historic monument in Quebec. It was also selected by an international team of historians and journalists as one of the "1001 Historic Sites You Must See Before You Die." (Photo courtesy of Château Ramezay)

This month, the Château Ramezay is looking for volunteer history guides, and they'll train you for 9 weeks to get you ready. Jim Little is the coordinator of the English Guides Preparatory Course at the Château and he spoke with Elizabeth Robertson this morning.
