Beauchamp Houses

These homes are considered historical sites given their history with the Beauchmap Family.

A) Hector Beauchamp Home, 1624 Landry Street

Around 1850, Charles Beauchamp and his wife Geneviève Bélanger, one of the pioneer families, arrived in Clarence Creek. They settled on a land that covered the North-East section of the center of the village. A saw mill, located close to the current arena was opened.  Charles’ grandson, Hector, was the owner of the mill when it burned down in 1925. Close to this mill, a house built in 1875 also partially burned down. The front part of the house was salvage.

Hector Beauchamp became owner of the land North of Ste-Félicité church and moved the salvaged portion of the house onto his land and picked up the back portion in Saint-Pascal-Baylon to complete his home. He built a saw mill in 1926 and added a mill for grinding the grain.

Anecdote

Françoise Beauchamp (fifth generation) who lives in the house says: ''I'm in my kitchen in Saint-Pascal-Baylon and in my living room when I'm in Clarence Creek. ''
B)Ferrier Beauchamp House, 1629 Landry Street

Between 1860 and 1865, Charles operated the lime kiln located a few steps away from his home.  The kiln was in operation until 1890.   His grandson, Ferrier, operated the quarry from 1925 to 1948. Ferrier, Hector’s brother, originally built this home in 1890 and it was divided into two units, where he lived with his son Rene and his family.
