Building Conservation at the Grosse Île and the Irish Memorial National Historic Site: Technical and Real Life Challenges
Monday, October 27, 2014, 6:30–4:30


Located in the middle of the St. Lawrence River, Grosse Île was a quarantine station for the Port of Québec from 1832 to 1937, and the main point of entry for immigrants coming to Canada for almost a century. In this role, the station also witnessed the tragic events experienced by Irish immigrants, primarily during the typhoid epidemic of 1847. In addition to presenting an overview of this rich history, this field session will focus on recent building conservation projects completed in Grosse Île, highlighting the specific challenges of working in such a unique site, and some of the technical solutions developed to address these conditions.

This field session will depart from the hotel on a bus, travel to the Montmagny Airport and then fly in small planes (6-8 seats) to the island.
