Built in 1829, the Fraser Manor was classified as a heritage site by the MCC in 1991. It includes the Manor, several outbuildings and land. Through its political and economic commitment, the Fraser family has made a significant mark on the history of the Rivière-du-Loup County. Since its purchase by Lord Alexander Fraser in 1834, the seigneurial Manor has hosted four generations of this illustrious family. CHQ acquired the house in 1979 and in 1996 it was restored and is now open to the public as a heritage interpretation centre.
While highlighting a multitude of architectural details that make the Fraser Manor a unique heritage site, its restoration has enabled the reconstruction of the interior and has thus recreated the atmosphere of a bourgeois house from the early 20th century. A visit to the Fraser Manor will allow you to relive and to absorb the colorful past of Rivière-du-Loup. You will also be charmed by the beautiful landscaped garden.
If you have time, you can continue your walking tour and visit the St. Bartholomew’s Anglican Church and the cemetery where Lord Alexander Fraser was buried.
Interpretation tours and site maintenance activities are managed by the Board of Directors and volunteers of the Société de sauvegarde du patrimoine du Grand-Portage.
