Overview

Built in 1978 at the entrance to Chéticamp Harbour by La Société Saint-Pierre as a cultural and information centre, Les Trois Pignons plays a vital role in the economic, social and cultural development of this Acadian community.

Open from mid-May to mid-October, the Visitor Information Centre is staffed from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm (6:30 pm during July and August). The guides will be happy to provide information on travel, services, activities and tourist attractions in the area, as well as a large collection of tourist tips in the form of brochures, maps, guides, etc. Very knowledgeable on this Acadian community, they can help you make the most of your visit with information about our local history, culture and way of life.

Our museum, featuring the Elizabeth LeFort Gallery and the Marguerite Gallant Collection, displays hundreds of antiques reflecting the daily life of the Chéticamp settlers. Prominent are examples of tools and demonstrations of techniques used in the creation of the world-renowned Chéticamp hooked rugs.

Managed by volunteers, the Centre de généalogie Père-Charles-Aucoin is located on the main floor of the Trois Pignons. In a small space barely measuring 47 square meters, volunteers, Jean-Doris (à Joe à Joe) LeBlanc et Charles D. (à Freddie à Damien) Roach, continue the work of the Centre’s founder.
