Seigneurial Estate of Mascouche
The rich and noble history of an estate
First representation of the buildings
This sketch, made by Jacques Frédéric Doudiet in 1846, is the first known representation of the buildings of the seigneurial domain of Mascouche. You can clearly see the mill and the miller's house on the banks of the Mascouche River.
In this photo dating from the 1920s, we can clearly recognize the mill and the miller's house, when they were operated by the Corbeil family.
Mrs. Colville’s renovations
In 1930, Mrs. Colville had all the buildings of the seigneurial estate renovated, including the mill and the miller's house. At that time, the ground floor of the miller's house served as accommodation for the gardener and the upper floor served as accommodation for his driver. As for the mill, it was converted into a garage.
