Musée-église Saint-Venant

Saint-Venant-de-Paquette ( Cantons-de-l'Est )

The church-museum (1877) has its original varnished-wood interior intact and its unique architecture has earned it the nickname “Turret of the Townships.” The Caisse Populaire (1907) was the first such financial institution set in rural in North America. You can now visit the Maison de l’Arbre, the starting point of the Sentier Poétique trail, inaugurated in 1998 by the Amis du patrimoine (a heritage group which includes renowned Quebec singer Richard Séguin) to celebrate our local poets. Audio-guide tours.
