Come and relive the story of Jean-Pierre Roma, a French merchant who founded the international trade post in Three Rivers in 1732.
Take part in heritage discovery experiences led by bilingual guides in period costumes: the French heritage garden, artifacts, toys, costumes and games for children, cod fishing, chocolate importing.
Discover interactive activities: calligraphy, wax candle workshop, stone painting, bracelet making, making fresh bread and more.
For history buffs, hike the 9 km wooded trails along the Brudenell and Montague rivers or the one-kilometre heritage section with interpretive posters.
Look at artifacts dating back to Roma’s time (1732-1745) and discovered in the 1960s during archaeological excavations. If all this has whetted your appetite, picnic on the grounds, sheltered near the terracotta bread oven or order from the restaurant’s menu.
This Summer, immerse yourself in the story of Jean-Pierre Roma, the French man with big dreams.
