Maisonneuve

Artist(s):

The Philias Maisonneuve family operated a sawmill in Rich Valley from 1910 to 1915. Quebec-Canadians had experience in logging camps, sawmills, and construction sites. Philias’s sawmill is an example of the French-Canadian role in the transition from logs to planks in Alberta. This mural depicts their sawmill in operation.
