LeBer-Lemoyne House


After it burned down and was rebuilt in 1695, the house was modified several times by its various owners: the façade was redone with openings surrounded by dimension stone; dormer windows, an enclosed gallery, an outbuilding, and a sundeck were added. As it appears now, the restored house is a typical example of residential architecture in the 17th century. Built of fieldstone and lime/sand mortar with a double-sloping cedar-shingled roof and gable walls topped with a chimney, the rectangular house has three small-paned shuttered windows and a front door. Inside, the fireplace, steep staircase, and built-in cupboard are original to the house. It includes a bakery and a stone outbuilding with musket loopholes - now known as the Benoît-Verdict Pavilion; today, the buildings have been adapted to meet the needs of the museum.
