Moulin Légaré

Built in 1762 and still producing wheat and buckwheat flour using the river’s power and traditional techniques and mill stones, the Moulin Légaré holds the title of the oldest water mill still in operation in North America. It was designated a Historic Monument by the Quebec Government in 1976 and a National Historic Site by the federal government in 1999. The project included the complete interior and exterior restoration of the mill – masonry walls and wood elements including the miller’s house.
