Built in 1744, the oldest house in Eastern Quebec, the Lamontagne House is the one of the rare stoned half-timbered house open to the public in Canada. Half timbering is a construction technique in which the wooden frame and beams are exposed and the spaces between them are filled with stone and mortar. Outside the Lamontagne House is an exhibition describing the history of domestic architecture in Quebec, while inside, period furniture illustrates rural life in the time of New France. The Lamontagne House is the only interpretation centre on domestic architecture in Quebec.
