Description

With its 80,000 visitors per year, Maison Saint-Gabriel is a living part of Montreal’s memory. Purchased by Marguerite Bourgeoys in 1668 to ensure the self-sufficiency of her community and to house the Daughters of the King, the “Saint-Gabriel farm” has been transformed over time, surviving the conflicts, fires and turbulence of history. Today, this museum and historic site has become a dynamic place open to all.   With her exceptional sense of storytelling, Micheline Lachance tells us the fabulous history of these places which, for more than three centuries, have seen generations of pioneers live.   Richly illustrated, Maison Saint-Gabriel is a beautiful book that will delight history buffs and history lovers alike.
