Obadjiwan–Fort Témiscamingue National Historic Site

More than three centuries ago, in 1720, the authorities of New France allowed the establishment of the first trading post on the current site. This former trading post has borne witness to the presence of Indigenous people for some six millennia and the scene of commercial rivalries between fur traders for 200 years. It is at the heart of regional history.

During your visit to the historic site, let yourself be charmed by the pebble beach and the mysterious "enchanted forest." Exhibitions—some permanent, some temporary—and the film "The Voyageurs" are a must-see at the historic site.
