  •  Interesting Features
    English:

    A very nice place to go, even though it is impossible to get inside unless you are a ninja. It features magnificent architecture, many medieval-style guard towers and is located near a stream overlooked by a waterfall. Located in a heavily-wooded vale on the outskirts of the town of Mascouche, the Pierre-Le-Gardeur Manor benefits of an exceptional environment, not only in the nature that surrounds it, but also in the history that emanates from its walls.


    Français:

    Vraiment une belle place ou aller, malgré l'imposibilité d'y entrer a moin d'etre un ninja, une architecture merveilleuse, situer pres d'un court d'eau surplombé d'une chute, plusieur tour de guarde de style médieval. Situé au creux d'un vallon très boisé à l'extérieur de la ville de Mascouche, le Manoir de Pierre Le Gardeur jouit d'un environnement exceptionnel, tant par l'histoire qui se dégage de ses murs que par la nature qui l'entoure.

     History
    English:

    The construction of the first building dates back to 1715, under the impulse of Pierre Le Gardeur, grandson of lord Pierre Le Gardeur de Repentigny. The territory on which this manor is built had been conceded to the latter by the Compagnie de la Nouvelle-France.

    Around 1763, a new construction was added to the main building. Between 1796 and 1954, the manor had many different owners and went through multiple renovations, which gave it the look it has today. Those were favourable times for the Manor, and it was frequented, among others, by the marquis de Vaudreuil, intendent Hoquard, the marquis de Moncalm and the honourable R.B. Bennet, the ex-Prime Minister of Canada, who sojourned there during certain summers. In 1940, the manor was host to the great duchess of Luxemburg.

    The manor was subsequently enlarged and transformed into a high school. It was used for strictly scholar purposes until the end of the 1990’s. The building is presently a Sûreté du Québec police station. The beauty of the site and the architectural value of the manor are undeniable. Unfortunately, no visits are possible. Worse yet, no serious architectural study was done to update and interpret this regional gem.


    Français:

    La construction du premier édifice date de 1715, sous l'impulsion de Pierre Le Gardeur, petit-fils du seigneur Pierre Le Gardeur de Repentigny. Les terres sur lesquelles est érigé ce manoir avaient été concédées à ce dernier par la Compagnie de la Nouvelle-France.

    Vers 1763, une nouvelle construction est ajoutée au corps du bâtiment. De 1796 à 1954, le manoir connaît de nombreux propriétaires et subit de multiples rénovations qui lui donnent son visage d'aujourd'hui. Il connaît alors des temps fastes et est fréquenté entre autres par le marquis de Vaudreuil, l'intendant Hocquart, le marquis de Montcalm, et l'honorable R.B. Bennet, ancien premier ministre du Canada qui y séjourne durant certains étés. En 1940, le manoir est l'hôte de la grande duchesse du Luxembourg qui y trouve refuge.

    Le manoir est par la suite agrandi et transformé en école secondaire. Il est utilisé à des fins strictement scolaires jusqu'à la fin des années 1990. Le batiment est présentement un poste de police de la Sureté du Quebec. La beauté du site ainsi que la valeur architecturale du manoir sont indéniables. Malheureusement aucune visite n'est possible. Pire encore, aucune étude architecturale approfondie n'a été faite pour mettre à jour et interpréter ce joyau régional.

     Future Plans
    English:

    EDIT as of March 2011 : All parts of the buildings are now completely abandonned. Metal scrapers were already there. Many windows are now broken.

    Unknown plans for the future

    ---

    The building is not totally occupied: One part is a Sûreté du Québec police station, but another, much larger part remains unoccupied.

    Français:

    LE batiment n'est pas totalement ocupé , une partie est un poste de police de la sureté du québec , une autres tres grande parti est innocupé .
