Maison Hector-Authier is best known as the first urban residence in Abitibi and for its first occupant Mr. Hector Authier, “Father of Abitibi”. The guided tour of this attraction focuses on the role it played during the colonization of Abitibi. The outdoor route aims to complete the visit, exhibiting portraits of personalities dating from the beginnings of the colonization of Amos (1910-1930), who rubbed shoulders with the central character of the house. These portraits were made by two artists from Amos, photographer/visual artist Sandra Larochelle and writer Samuel Larochelle. An auditory frame accessible by QR code makes it possible to represent in a more vivid way the people who contributed to the development of Amos. The visit of this route can be done independently or in the company of a guide. more!
