It was here, in 1695, that Nicolas D’Ailleboust, Sieur de Coulonge, established the region’s first fur trading post. The legacy of 19th-century lumber baron George Bryson endures in the municipality’s superb architectural heritage. Stroll through the village and admire three magnificent Victorian homes, including “Spruceholme”, built by George Bryson, Jr. and now being run as an inn, meticulously restored with many of its original furnishings and archival photographs. The religious heritage of Fort-Coulonge is equally impressive: you’ll be amazed by the many beautiful stained-glass windows.
