Built in the 18th century, this house is one of the most beautiful examples of the urban architecture developed in New France. Particularly striking are its massive crude rock walls, chimneys and steeply-sloped roof. Pierre du Calvet, its illustrious occupant, was a supporter of the American Revolution and held meetings with Benjamin Franklin, an envoy sent abroad by George Washington in 1775-1776. Today, it is a first-class inn.
