Period furniture of the 19th century

Since 2000, the Association of the George Bryson Heritage House has developed a collection of articles, rooms of furniture and archives pertaining to the history of the Pontiac and the Bryson family.  Certain objects were kindly donated or loaned by local families, which permitted the restoration of an interior reminiscent of the period.  The house was in ruins and empty when it was repurchased by the Municipality in 1980.

Farm implements and logging tools

On the ground floor, period furniture of the 19th century awaits you in the dining room and kitchen.  On the second story, you will find a room describing the history of the construction of the longest covered bridge in Québec; a room containing traditional crafts; another for fur trading, farm implements and logging. You will also find a reproduction of a master bedroom and a room for archives, with documents, books and photographs from the turn of the 20th century. 

The Association is always looking for objects having belonged to the Bryson family or pertaining to the history of the Pontiac.
