Centre d'interprétation du magasin général O'Brien

Region City
Chaudière-Appalaches Thetford Mines

Located on rue du Lac-Noir, the oldest road in the Black Lake sector, this general store first opened its doors in 1909. The interior and exterior have been fully preserved, creating the sensation that time has stood still. Travel back through the decades between 1900 and 1950.
