This house, built in 1825, was once called the Villa of Roses. The Pascal Poirier House is the oldest home in Shediac. The restored ancestral home of Senator Pascal Poirier (1852-1933), the first Acadian politician appointed to the Senate, allows visitors to glimpse into the past and get a feeling of how a middle class family lives at the beginning of the 19th century.

In 1872, Pascal Poirier, at the young age of 20 years old, is appointed Postmaster of the House of Commons by Sir John A. MacDonald. Pascal Poirier was a historian, a businessman, an attorney, a politician and a Man of Letters. He was knighted “Chevalier de la Légion d’honneur de la République française.” He was one of the founders of La Société nationale l’Assomption, which today is recognized as La Société nationale des Acadiens. Pascal Poirier was appointed to the Senate at the age of 33 and was hailed as the defender of the Acadian cause.
