Renovated Maison St Dizier

This is the latest photo of the Maison St Dizier (Old Stone House) on LaSalle Boulevard. As I have reported recently, this historical house was built in 1710 and we celebrate it's 300th anniversary this year. The house was renovated at a cost of 1 and a quarter million dollars and is destined to be a museum. Our society (SHGV) has been closely involved in the promotion of this building and we continue to do so in the future.

Here is a list of the photos that appear in the calendar:

Interior of the Maison St Dizier

Altar on the Boardwalk (1944) celebrating "La Fête Dieu"
