Three years after the death of her husband died in 1883, Mme. Mcdougall and her teenage sons built a sturdy log house and operated a thriving General Store. This house now stands at Place St. Norbert in the heart of Historic St. Norbert. The McDougall House is a one-and-a-half storey lot building with dovetail corners, considered by many to be the ultimate in log building construction. Because of the great care needed in making these corners, usually only an “expert axeman” would choose the style. The fact that the joints still fit snugly on this 105-year-old house shows the remarkable workmanship involved.
Tours of the grounds run throughout the day, starting on the hour and lasting 15 to 20 minutes.
