The Château Dufresne has been listed a historical monument since 1976. This imposing residence, which was built by brothers Oscar and Marius Dufresne (1915-1918), testifies to the aspirations, ideas, and tastes of the French-Canadian bourgeoisie at the beginning of the last century. Painted by Guido Nincheri (1885-1973), the wall decorations are the most important secular work of the Florentine artist, best known for his sacred art which adorns nearly 200 churches in Canada and the United States. The Studio Nincheri is closed for renovation for an undetermined amount of time.
