Rosemont is a station on the Orange Line of the Montreal Metro rapid transit system, operated by the Société de transport de Montréal (STM). It is located in the borough of Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.[1] The station opened on October 14, 1966, as part of the original network of the Metro.

Overview[edit]

The station, designed by Duplessis, Labelle et Derome, is a normal side platform station, built in tunnel. It has a ticket barrier at transept level leading to a single entrance adjacent to a bus loop and a municipal parking lot.

Origin of the name[edit]

This station is named for boulevard Rosemont, the main street of the Rosemont district. This area was developed on an area purchased by land speculators Ucal-Henri Dandurand and Herbert Holt from the Canadian Pacific Railway; it was incorporated as the Village of Rosemont in 1915, named by Dandurand in honour of his mother, née Rose Phillips.
