Not only Canada’s first iron industry, but also its first industrial village, that is the Forges du Saint-Maurice National Historic Site’s very essence.
On the shore of the Saint-Maurice River and bordered by a brook, the Forges combines cultural and natural treasures. In the Grande Maison it is possible to enter the universe of this original industrial community. The blast furnace reveals the mystery of iron-making. The archaeological remains are witnesses of this era where life of the whole community centered on the intense iron production.
Open daily from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
