House History:

Castel D'Amérique Française

Welcomes you to our genuine ancestral Manor built in 1860 by the famous architect Charles Baillargé for Pierre Baillargeron (1812-1891), doctor, dentist and then the senator.Pierre was the brother of Mgr. Charles-François Baillargeon (1798-1870), sixteenth bishop and third archbishop of Québec. Both of them were native of l’Île-aux-Grues. The son of Pierre Baillargeon, Jules (1850-1945), wine importer, and his wife Atala Gourdeau (1858-1943), succeeded him. They brought up 8 children in this home. When his parents passed away, 5 daughters, Blanche, Julienne, Jeanne, Yvette and Marguerite, continued to live here until the departure of the youngest one in 1996.
