A Glimpse into the Past

Scrapbooks filled with old photographs offer us a glimpse into life at the manor of Louis-Joseph Papineau and his family.

Sit on a rustic bench to enjoy these images!


The Papineau Chapel

In the middle of the woods, on one of our frequent trips to the church, we will delve into memories that are dear to the heart and to the memory... Louis-Joseph Papineau wrote to his son Amédée on January 31, 1852.

In the area around the manor house road, beneath high pines, in the calm of the estate's forest, lies the Papineau funeral chapel. Since 1855, many family members have been buried here, Louis-Joseph Papineau among them.

The Louis-Joseph Papineau Historical Society, responsible for the building, opens the chapel to visitors from Wednesday to Sunday, in July and August from 10 a.m. to noon and from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
