Toussaint-Lachapelle Park

In this park we can admire the Lièvre River and the hydroelectric dam Rapide-de-l'Orignal. The park has benches, a sandbox, and games for children.

You can also admire the sculpture "The Draveur" by Roger Langevin, a sculptor from the region, whose work has an international reputation. This sculpture represents a log driver at work.

This park is named after one of the first doctors in the village who was also an industrialist; he co-founded the Bellerive wood veneer plant. The park site was originally occupied by the residence of Dr. Oscar Godard, who was, also, one of the first doctors to settle in Mont-Laurier, at the beginning of the century.

Maison Alix-Bail

The priest François-Xavier-Antoine Labelle (1833-1891), promoter of the colonization of the Laurentians, travelled up the Lièvre River in 1885 and visited the area of ​​L’Orignal rapids. Judging the farmland to be worth cultivating, he convinced farmers to settle there. The same year, Solime Alix (1856-1927), George and Bail Adolphe as well as Georges Hudon settled near the rapids and quickly erected a temporary shelter. In 1889, Solime Alix built, with the help of Adolphe Bail, the house that still stands today for his family, which joined him in the emerging hamlet which became Mont-Laurier. By the turn of the century, the settlement was claiming the title of regional capital of the Upper Laurentians.
 
The Alix-Bail house filled several roles, including that of general store. In 1895, when Solime Alix became postmaster, it was enlarged through the addition of an annex jutting out at a straight angle from the back. This addition has now disappeared.

City Hall

Housed in its new premises since October 28, 2013, the Mont-Laurier City Hall offers citizens and visitors one-stop services under one roof pertaining to general administration, human resources, finances, registry and communications, leisure and culture, and planning.
 
Acquired in 2012 from Mont-Laurier’s Benedictine nuns, the former abbey is one of the finest buildings in the city and is a local heritage asset. The imposing building has been renovated while preserving its architecture and rich collective history.
 
Since November 2014, the complex also houses the tourist information office and the Mont-Laurier exhibition center is expected to move into the same building in the near future.
 
The Benedictine nuns left the Abbey in 2011, marking the end of an era. If their lives as cloistered nuns lent the monastery an aura of mystery, their hard work benefited generations of Mont-Laurier citizens. They welcomed the many people who sought advice and prayers. The Benedictine Sisters also sold chocolate and caramel butter made with the milk of the goats they raised. They were also known throughout Quebec and in francophone communities in Canada and the United States for their music, publishing dozens of liturgical songbooks.
