Mike D'Errico / 193 items
L'Isle-aux-Coudres is located in the heart of the St. Lawrence River, two kilometers from the north shore. In 1815, the absence of effective mills for grinding grains caused a famine on the island. Residents often had to travel to the north shore despite the dangerous boat crossings over the river, especially in winter! The Séminaire de Québec, Lord of the island approved the construction of a watermill. It was completed in 1825. However, over the years, the watermill produced low yields. This is why a windmill was built nearby in 1836.
