Guided Tour of Baie-Comeau
TAKE THE TIME TO...
visit Baie-Comeau’s heritage district and its attractions.
Accompanied by an experienced interpretive guide, discover the beginnings of Baie-Comeau. In 1937, Colonel Robert McCormick founded a town around his paper mill, the Quebec North Shore Paper. This same mill produced newsprint for the Chicago Tribune, of which he was president. This remarkable, inspiring, and visionary man left us a legacy.
On your walk, you’ll cross paths with Colonel McCormick, at the helm of his canoe, with whom you’ll likely want a selfie.
Then, on to Parc des Pionniers. You’ll follow a tree-lined path in the heart of a developed and thriving ecosystem. You’ll find that in Baie-Comeau, much to everyone’s delight, nature is always nearby.
During a welcome break, you can quench your thirst on the beautiful terrace of the Hôtel le Manoir.
Next is the heritage portion of the tour. You’ll see the St-Andrews and St-Georges Church, Baie-Comeau’s first church built in the Tudor style in 1937, and its neighbour the Sainte-Amélie Church, built in the Dom Bello style in 1938. These are jewels you’ll definitely enjoy visiting.
