Built in 1852 by John Robinson Hamilton, Queen’s Council and Bonaventure County Deputy in the Lower Canada Assembly from 1841 to 1844, this neo-classical English manor house was constructed in a style very unusual for Québec. The four chimneys and eight fireplaces have certainly added to the building’s heritage value.

The Manoir Hamilton is the only example of Palladian architecture in the Gaspésie, proudly echoing the influence of Andrea Palladio, the renowned Italian Renaissance architect.
A tour of the Manoir, its every room filled with furniture, carpets, old books, paintings and period dishes, will transport you directly to the 19th century, when the Gaspésie was prime Loyalist territory.

The kitchen still boasts a traditional bread oven and the original hearth, complete with trammel.
