Louis S. St. Laurent National Historic Site of Canada

Situated in Compton in the beautiful Eastern Townships, Louis S. St. Laurent National Historic Site is hosting a journey back to the country charm of the early 20th century. Louis Stephen St. Laurent was Prime Minister of Canada from 1948 to 1957. St. Laurent’s childhood home offers an exceptional site for visitors. Explore J.B.M. St. Laurent’s general store, adjacent to the heritage home.

The impressive collection of merchandise provides clues to the daily lives of past villagers. In the general store’s warehouse, a multimedia projection tells the story of St. Laurent’s life and work, interspersed with important events of the 20th century.

Discover the remarkable destiny of a great man, and fall under the spell of the special concert programs offered each Sunday during the summer in the splendid garden. Don’t miss the Weekend with a Country Flavour at the beginning of August! A gastronomic experience to dine for!
