The Pabos Historical and Archaeological Site presents the day-to-day life of a Gaspé Peninsula fishing village in New France in the 1730-1758 period. Archaeological remains provide the setting for historical tableaux of Pabos in the days of the seigneury. The interpretation centre at the historic and archaeological site offers a unique experience in a building that has won two architectural awards and is perfectly integrated into the surrounding environment. A tour of the Site will carry you back 275 years, to the time of the Seigneurs Lefebvre de Bellefeuille, then 125 years after the destruction of the French post, in the 19th century, when the King Brothers Company established a steam-operated sawmill on the site.
