"Maison Chevalier" Place Royale & Le Petit Champlain Tip by ChuckG
Place Royale & Le Petit Champlain, Quebec: 67 reviews and 94 photos
Built in 1752 for ship owner Jean-Baptiste Chevalier, the existing structure incorporated two older buildings, dating from 1675 and 1695. It was run as an inn throughout the 19th century. The Québec government restored the house in 1960, and it became a museum 5 years later. Inside, with its exposed wood beams, wide-board floors, and stone fireplaces, are changing exhibits on Québec history and civilization, especially in the 17th and 18th centuries.
