Fodor's Review

This old stone house (which is actually three houses brought together) was built in 1752 for the shipowner Jean-Baptiste Chevalier. Its classic French style is one rich aspect of the urban architecture of New France. The double-thick walls, high chimneys, vaulted cellars, original wood beams, and stone fireplaces are noteworthy. An exhibition displays typical interior design from the 18th and 19th centuries, featuring artifacts from the Museum of Civilization vaults.
