Seaforth, residence of David Douglas Young.
This imposing residence, dating from 1863, was originally the property of a wealthy Quebec merchant, David Douglas Young. Mr. Young owned D. D. Young and Company, a commercial shipping line operating between Quebec and England. He was among the first summer residents to settle in Cacouna. Sir Alexander Tilloch Galt, one of most fervent defenders of the Canadian Confederation stayed here over a period of 20 years, coming for the first time in 1874. Mr. Galt was also Finance Minister under Sir John A. Macdonald, who spent his summers in nearby Saint-Patrice-de-Rivière-du-Loup.
