Overlooking the Grande-Grave beach, the Dolbel-Roberts House speaks of the cultural contributions of the lives of the busy families who used to work on the beaches and in the harbour. As you contemplate the magnificent view from the porch, it is easy to let your imagination drift off to a time when sea and land were central to daily life.
The exibit Gaspesians from land’s end takes visitors into a universe woven of an impressive diversity of cultures, religions and traditions. It speaks of the cultural contributions of the small communities that inhabited this area at Land’s End and showcases Forillon’s last residents and their heritage at the time the park was created.
