About us

The original schoolhouse was very important to the village of Grandes-Piles.  Many a resident of the village to this day has fond memories of being a student here. 

Originally built in the late 1880’s, only the west side of the house existed.  Eventually, the east extension was added in 1924, and the sisters of the Assumption moved in and the building became a convent.  They became the teachers, and classes were were held in the original schoolhouse.

The building has also been home to a general store, and up until it was purchased by the current owner, was divided up as private apartments.
