As part of Les Musées de la Civilisation, this and the adjacent two homes evidence the urban architecture of New France. Built in 1752 and rebuilt 10 years later, Maison Chevalier’s asymetrical design followed what used to be a shoreline. Walls, as well as window and door openings, are made of regional sandstone and limestone. Indoor tours focus on how the furnishings, gathered from the museums’ collections, represent Québec’s different political regimes during the 18th and 19th centuries.
