Description of Historic Place
La Grande École, now converted into an apartment building, is an imposing two-and-a-half-storey wooden building constructed in 1915 and located at 180 Canada Street, Saint-Quentin.
The heritage value of La Grande École as a local historic place resides in its original use as an educational institution. It was built in 1915 to replace a school that had become too small. La Grande École testifies to the importance of education to the new villagers and the origins of teaching in the village of Saint-Quentin. It was replaced by the Académie Saint-Joseph in 1925.
