Maison Drouin is one of the oldest French-inspired homes on the Isle of Orleans and a cultural gem. This structure, which was constructed at Sainte-Famille in 1729 and enlarged in 1734, is of great architectural and historical significance because of its location and the interior’s excellent preservation. A trip to the house is like going back in time and taking in over three centuries of history all at once! You will be impressed by the site’s rich past, which includes a farmhouse that has been transformed into an island history information centre. A selection of fascinating movies serve as the highlight of your tour of this typical period home that has been modified for the local climate. Take note of the design and features of dwellings at the time. An engaging tour guide will fill you in on every detail of the lives of the farmers who arrived on this gorgeous island in the St. Lawrence River in the 18th century.
