1971 11 Feb The Montreal Municipality issues a permit recognizing the Maxwell home as a Bahá'í Shrine after nine years of negotiations and delays. With this struggle came a hidden blessing. For years the Shrine had been used as a Bahá'í Centre by the Montreal community, open also to friends of the area as a place to hold public meetings, open Feasts, and certain activities not always suited to it as a Shrine. The realization is made that it is a National Bahá'í Shrine and as such should not be used as a centre. [CBNApril1971p10] Montreal; QC Montreal Shrine
