Let historical experts guide you through a moment in Canada’s history, when men and women did everything by hand. The Pointe-du-Moulin Park boasts one of only two working mills still left in the province of Québec. The mill and the nearby miller’s house have been standing since 1708 and 1787 respectively! The park is dedicated to preserving the integrity of the site while making it a fun place to learn about local history. This mill was used for centuries by farmers from Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot, L’Île-Perrot, Pincourt and Terrasse-Vaudreuil, and thus is one of the founding aspects of the region’s long and proud agricultural heritage.
In summer, listen to stories, meet pirates, go fishing, camp under the stars, dine and dance; there is no end to the entertaining fundraising events put on at the park, which also hosts events for Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot. The site also has facilities available for weddings, conferences and meetings, and hosts school and other groups for interpretive tours. Members get great rates and perks, so consider signing up to support this vibrant heritage site!
