Forges du Saint-Maurice National Historic Site
Forges du Saint-Maurice National Historic Site (St. Maurice Ironworks) is the birth place of Canada's iron industry. It began operating in 1738, and opened as a national historic park in 1973. Families have plenty of activities to choose from at the park, from guided tours, talking a walk alongside the St. Maurice River, picnicking in the green spaces, or visiting the various story-telling exhibits throughout. Traditional iron-making techniques, using a blast furnace, are also available for group demonstration.
