10:00 to 17:00

Take time out to visit the home of the Blanchette family, the barn, fish shed, woodshed and various structures used by the family to dry cod. Costumed interpreters are on hand to answer your questions and provide you with additional background. To round off your visit, be sure to take a few minutes to view the video entitled “We Always Looked to the Sea,” which is screened in the barn.

Many families at Grande-Grave who fished for a living also did a little mountainside farming on the side. A veritable emblem of Forillon, the Blanchette house bears witness to the fisherman-farmers’ traditional way of life in the early 20th century.
