1977 - Village Québécois d'Antan

In June, the first funding grant is announced, and Rolland Hétu, René Bourassa, Paul Émile Courchesne, and Antonio Martel are hired as the first employees. The Village Québécois d’Antan will officially be established on a piece of land located near the parc des Voltigeurs, on the banks of the Saint-François River in Drummondville. The objective behind this project is to preserve and protect Quebec’s cultural heritage.
