Ancestor's House - 300 Years Old by JocelyneR Ancestor's House - 300 Years Old by JocelyneR
House of one of my ancestors who has been part of the first settlement so far East on year 1,700, in the colony then called Nouvelle-France. He was accompanying the new Seignior François La Sales de la Terrière.
Three centuries old houses are very rare in Canada.

Photo taken at sunset.

People take very good care of old houses, our country is still "young", there are not too many ancient houses though.
There are still persons living in this house. :D

Is this part of an historical village Jocelyne or do people actually still live in the house

It's beautiful in it's simplicity

JocelyneR Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2012
Oh, there are no historical villages here like in the Maritimes, as far as I know. People still live in this house of course!
Thank you so much, Brian for your kind comment!

You are right, and many of these houses are still occupied.
But Canada is so young compared to your country, where many very ancient cottages, manors, castles, etc. are so well preserved!

It is very close to the cottage you, know, about 15 kms. Old houses are well preserved in this region. This one is amongst the oldest of the whole country though. Some may be around 50 years older but they are very rare.
Thank you very much, Dana! :hug:

It's good they try to preserve old buildings. Here in our town they also try to keep the old view about the town. If they renew houses they try to keep them in old style as it was ages ago.
