Build in 1744, the Lamontagne House is the oldest stone-filled half-timbered house open to the public in Eastern Quebec. Almost three hundred years old, it was built for Marie-Agnès Lepage, granddaughter of the first resident lord of Rimouski. Today, the Lamontagne house located in Rimouski is a museum dedicated to the life in the Nouvelle-France era.
Animated visits, exhibitions about the life in the Nouvelle-France era and shop with regional products. Also on site, an exhibition about the evolution of the residential architecture in Quebec, bread baking on Friday afternoons and musical performances on Sunday.
