La maison Paquet � is a farm house built in 1760, This vast house built in the French style “pieces sur pieces� is representative of the rural French architecture with its double sloped roof, its very thin drip edge and its typical framework. This house belonged to the Paquet family during more than 150 years. It was the birthplace of Mgr Benjamin Pâquet (1832-1900), director of “Le Grand Seminaire de Quebec� and rector of the Laval University, and of the politician Étienne-Théodore Pâquet (1850-1916), deputy, secretary and registrar of the province of Quebec. Restoration The building is part of the patrimonial area of Saint-Nicolas since 1987. A meticulous restoration accomplished by the Taschereau family, under the supervision of an architect from the ministry of cultural affairs, permitted to give back to the building its original configuration. The double sloped roof was put back in place, dormer windows were installed, the wine cellar was restored, the baker oven and the 3 stone chimney were also restored. The exterior envelope and the structural elements of the building were classified as patrimonial in 1989. (the interior is not concerned by this restriction). Since 1992, the house takes benefit of an area of protection of about 500 feet. The electric wires are buried on the whole site. Vocation Over its lifetime, the house has had many vocations; a farm house, then a general store, then a bi-generational house, then a residence with a professional office. Its charm, its history, its spacious rooms and its vast land with the magnificent view on the river make of this property a privileged place to establish an inn or a restaurant
