32, rue Fraser C.P. 473
Located in the heart of old Rivière-du-Loup, this elegant residence was built in 1830. Acquired in 1834 by the Seigneur Alexandre Fraser as his manor, it has been the property of the Fraser family for almost 150 years. Classified as a historical site in 1991, the Fraser Seigniorial Manor was restored and then opened to the public in 1997.
Whether on an independent or guided visit of the manor, you will discover the influence of the Fraser family on the evolution of Rivière-du-Loup in the XIXth century. You will delve into the atmosphere of distinction of this seigniorial residence and you will discover what the daily life of this well to do family was like by looking at the way the rooms are set up, the furniture and different objects that belonged to it over the generations.
Moreover, you may discover how the Fraser Seigneurs were able to build a picturesque and architecturally well integrated town, by following the guided tour “On the traces of the Fraser Seigneurs” which includes: a visit to the heritage sector of old Rivière-du-Loup, a commented visit of the Fraser Seignorial Manor and St Bartholomew and St-Patrice churches.
Over and beyond the visits of the Manor, a number of activities are scheduled over the summertime: thematic exhibitions, an art gallery, literary cafés, harvest celebrations, etc.
