Maison Krieghoff, the charming white house with green trim on Grande Allée, built in 1850, was lived in by the famous Dutch-Canadian artist Cornelius Krieghoff from 1859 to 1860. It was classified as a heritage building by the Quebec government in 1975.

The charming little house on Grande Allée at the top of Avenue Cartier sprouted a “sold” sign on its front lawn last week.

Lovingly restored and lived in by Esther Harrison for the past 20 years, the house has been purchased by another lady who lives in the neighbourhood and who, like Harrison, fell in love with the house at first sight.
