La Petite école rouge

Come and discover a place where time seems to stand still. The Little Red School House is part of CAMI's Historical Heritage Complex, and is nestled in the small village of Old Harry within the Municipality of Grosse Ile. The Little Red Schoolhouse is a reminder of simpler times where students gathered into a one room schoolhouse to learn their daily lessons. At the Little Red Schoolhouse one can visualize the old classroom with the aid of the existing hardwood floor, chalkboard, and two original desks. Over the years the museum's collection has grown and evolved to include old photographs, stories, and artifacts that help depict days gone by. These items will bring you back in time and give you an inside view of the English speaking community and their way life. Rates : Entrance for two museums (Veteran museum and the Little Red School House) : Adult : $5, 50 years old and older: $5, 11 years old and under: free.

    Municipalité de Grosse-Île

    The Municipality of Grosse-Ile is a small Anglophone community reconstituted on January 1, 2006, situated on the Eastern sector of the Magdalen Islands. This island forms what is commonly known as the East End of the archipelago, and it is the best model of a natural conservation site on the Îles de la Madeleine. The East Point Wildlife Reserve connects the islands to one another. The anglophone inhabitants of Grosse-Île are primarly fischermen and fish plant workers. The salt mine, located at the entrance to the Grosse-ILe district, an impressively large installation, is unique in North America. Salt is mined from huge domes that form part of the geological base of the islands. Grosse Île Island is home to many bird watching sites.
