Flour and saw mills! (Moulin à farine… Et à farine de bois!)

The Moulin seigneurial de Pointe-du-Lac offers the guided tour of 2 permanent exhibits showcasing the two buildings making the site – the Tonnacour lorship’s flour mill and the Brothers of Christian Instruction’s sawmill.

Master Miller (Maître meunier)

The “Master miller (Maître meunier)” exhibit plunges you into the everyday life of past centuries millers and reveals the secrets of the flour making process. Simultaneously workers and artisans, millers played a significant role in their community. The sawmill, like a church forecourt, was a gathering place bringing together the farmers and the miller, whose hard work ensured the food subsistence of all their families and animals.

Wood flour (Farine de bois)

The “Wood flour (Farine de bois)” exhibit located in the sawmill plunges you into the life of past century woodworkers. Built in the 1940’s and used until the middle of the 1980’s, the Brothers of Christian Instruction’s sawmill is a typical artisanal built from its era. Its hydropower actioned mechanisms can still be reactivated, much to the delight of visitors.
