On the banks of the St. Lawrence in the borough of Verdun, the Maison Nivard-De Saint-Dizier, a museum and archaeological site, is one of the oldest rural houses still standing on the Island of Montreal. Built in 1710, it stands on the most extensive prehistoric archaeological site on the Island, occupied by First Nations more than 5,500 years ago. The permanent exhibition covers the history of the house and the site, discoveries unearthed during various archaeological digs, and the complete restoration of the building. The Maison Nivard-De Saint-Dizier museum and archaeological site also offers a series of activities that promise a unique experience for visitors young and old.
