Manoir-Papineau embodies the environmental paradise dreamed of by the politician and ardent defender of culture, Louis-Joseph Papineau. Erected in the heart of nature, the imposing manor house is surrounded by lawns, a garden and a wooded area with its very own stream.
There are a number of 19th century outbuildings including the family museum, the granary, the funeral chapel where six generations of Papineaus were laid to rest, the tea house and a rustic bell tower.
After following the 800-metre pathway deep into the forest, enter the 19th century via the manor house's great door and walk through the finely appointed rooms to discover artifacts that recreate the family atmosphere of Papineau's time. Then, as you come out to admire the surrounding landscape, play geocaching to discover Jacqueline Papineau’s childhood memories “by chance”.
