Long Description:

Canadian National Historic Sites Plaque Text

Notre Dame de Bonne Esperance
"Begun in 1865 and largely completed by 1885, this building influenced the design of Oblate mission churches in Western Canada. It is one of the oldest surviving buildings of this type and its design, particularly the interior detail, offers a fine and unique example of a church decoration in the northwest. The building is further distinguished by its association with Father Emile Petitot, renowned ethnologist, linguist and geographer of the northwest, who lived at the mission from 1864 until 1878 and was responsible for the design and the partial execution of the building's interior decoration.
