The Sir William Price Heritage Centre Saguenay

Saguenay - Lac-Saint-Jean

This beatuful museum was built in 1912 in the very heart of the company town of Kenogami, the St. James the Apostle Anglican chapel holds religious offices until the mid-1980s. On the eve of its demolition, the citizens of Kenogami and the City of Jonquière managed to have it moved to Ball Park and converted into a museum. Thus the Sir William Price Heritage Centre is founded in 1987. The organization's purpose is to promote the historical, architectural, urban and industrial heritage of the borough of Jonquière and the City of Saguenay.

This museum features virtual exhibit “Arvida, cite de l’aluminium”, and “Œuvres sur papier”, which showcases the forest and pulp and paper industries in the mid-20th century. Learn more about the religious and historical background that shaped the identity of this lively community. Also, explore the history of photography through the “Une photo, un souvenir” exhibit.
