Rosalie Cadron-Jetté (1794-1864), mother of 11 children and foundress of the Misericordia Sisters, was born in this house, built around 1790. Here you can learn about the daily life of Rosalie Cadron and Jean-Marie Jetté with their first six children, around 1820, shortly before they left Lavaltrie. The period furniture, the vegetable and flower gardens, the cross standing by the road, the baker’s oven plus the old well and its mechanism, will take you back 200 years.
An exhibition in one of the rooms tells about the life and work of this exceptional woman who devoted her life to the poor, the miserable and unmarried mothers. She has now been proposed for sainthood.
You’ll enjoy the exhibition and workshops on the domestic arts: weaving, quilting, arrow sashes, braided and hooked rugs, knitting, embroidery, etc. Home-made bread, games and amusements from the past, handicrafts and regional products.
