Description

This early-18C stone house, of priceless historic value, was erected on the site of the St. Joseph mission (the first Jesuit mission in North America), established by Jesuits in 1637 in an attempt to convert the Montagnais, Algonquins and Atikamekw to a sedentary lifestyle. A stone fort was later built to protect them from attacks by Iroquois. The "Mission in New France" exhibition relates the encounter between the First Nation peoples and the Europeans.
