Information about the event
Phone: 418-694-9147

For those who prefer their history gruesome and bloody, the Morrin Centre will be hosting a unique presentation as part of its bilingual Connecting Through Culture series. Steven Cameron, Irish history enthusiast, will tell us chilling and fascinating tales of some of the inmates incarcerated at Quebec’s first common goal active from 1812 to 1868. In the very building which still houses some of the jail cells from this prison, you’ll learn about a public hanging, a banishment to Van Diemen’s Land, an anglo Patriote, a knife fight, a train derailment, marauding armed Orangemen, Ribbonmen hiding in the hills, a rape, and much more.
