Running the seigneury

Inside the granary after the renovation work

Head to the granary to discover this building built in 1855 and intended to store grain royalties owed to the seigneur. Napoléon Bourassa, painter and son-in-law of Louis-Joseph Papineau, set up his painting studio upstairs between 1858 and 1871.

Besides enjoying the wood ceiling, you can learn more about the way the seigneury of Petite-Nation operated in the past and about the functions of the other buildings on the estate.
