La Maison de nos Aïeux, historical center of the île d’Orléans

 Where is the land of my French-Canadian ancestors? How the village of Sainte-Famille has changed over time? Discover all the answers and many other activities at the Maison de nos Aïeux.

 This old rectory turned into a museum provides an overview of the history of the Île d’Orléans and its founding families. Come and check out the reference tools on the 300 and so founding families of the island.

 You can also have a picnic, stretch out on the grass or take pictures at the Parc-des-Ancêtres-de-l’île-d’Orléans, which affords a gorgeous view of the Laurentians.
