Long Description:
Not only Canada’s first iron industry, but also its first industrial village, that is the Forges du Saint-Maurice National Historic Site’s very essence.

On the shore of the Saint-Maurice River and bordered by a brook, the Forges combines cultural and natural treasures. In the Grande Maison it is possible to enter the universe of this original industrial community. The blast furnace reveals the mystery of iron-making. The archaeological remains are witnesses of this era where life of the whole community centered on the intense iron production.

Première industrie sidérurgique au Canada. Mais aussi premier village industriel du pays. Voilà l’essence même du lieu historique national des Forges-du-Saint-Maurice.

Sillonné d’un ruisseau et bordant la rivière Saint-Maurice, le site des Forges marie beauté naturelle et trésors culturels. La Grande Maison permet d’entrer dans l’univers particulier de cette communauté industrielle originale. Le haut fourneau révèle les mystères de la fabrication de la fonte et du fer. Les vestiges archéologiques témoignent de cette époque où la vie de toute une communauté battait au rythme d’une production intensive.
Dates of Operation: From: 6/21/2014 To: 9/1/2014
