A bit of history

Doiron House was built in 1841 by Joseph Doiron, a writer, justice of the peace and prosperous Acadian farmer. It was a luxurious Acadian house in its time. The preservation of the original masonry hearth—the only known Acadian house that still has one—is part of the house’s unique character.

Financially well-off, Mr. Doiron had a very spacious house built, which also served as an Acadian school and a place for community meetings and debates. The house reflects the traditions and architecture of the period and constitutes an important contribution to our history and that of Acadia.

The house was passed down to Joseph Doiron’s descendants from generation to generation until the City of Dieppe acquired it in 2016 to preserve the story of this important piece of the region’s history.

The tour

Prepare to dive into an adventure that will transport you through the various eras that make up the history of Doiron House and where you will help a young girl named Marie find a valuable object. With the help of a tablet loaned to you upon arrival, you will be accompanied by a guide who will help you discover the best-kept secrets of the families who lived there. It’s also possible to visit the house the traditional way, thanks to the interpretation panels and artifacts present throughout the tour.
