The manor was built in 1852 by John Richardson Hamilton, a Queen’s Council and Bonaventure County Deputy in the Lower Canada Assembly from 1841-1844. The neo-classical English manor house was constructed in a style and fashion that was unusual for Québec.
The manor is the only example of Palladian architecture in the Gaspésie which proudly displays the influence Andrea Palladio, a renowned Italian Renaissance architect.
A tour of the manor will transport you directly back to the 19th century when the Gaspésie was prime loyalist territory with its every room being filled with furniture, carpets, old books, paintings and period dishes. The kitchen still contains a traditional bread oven and the original hearth complete with trammel.
Within the manor is a library containing both historical and antique books with newspapers and magazines from the modern day. While the manor also contains an afternoon tea tearoom, an art gallery titled “Les Quat ‘Zarts Art Gallery” which is a visual arts and fine crafts exhibit. Along with an intimate theatre which screens repertory and classical films.
