Maison Gabrielle Roy, Deschambault Street

CDEM

The home of Gabrielle Roy is a very important and recurring symbol in the Franco-Canadian author's work. She lived there from her birth in 1909 to her departure for Europe in 1937. This house has been mentioned in many of her works, particularly in "Street of Riches" a series of stories inspired by the author's childhood in St. Boniface. Completely restored like in 1918, the house is today a must-see public museum.

Movies to go!
