Saint-Louis-de-kamouraska Church

The church, of Neo-Renaissance style, is the fourth in the history of Kamouraska. It was built from 1914 to 1916, partly on the walls of the previous burned in February 1914. Inside, there are remarkable silverware such as the font (1839), the lamp of the sanctuary (1840) and a organ cabinet shaped by Louis-Thomas Berlinguet dating from 1850. Saint Louis, King of France, is the patron saint of the parish probably in honor of Louis Aubert de Forillon, lord of Kamouraska from 1700 to 1713.

Submarine NCSM Onondaga

NCSM ONONDAGA

The Onondaga project is a project of the Pointe-au-Père Maritime Historical Site (SHMP), a museum located in Rimouski, Quebec, Canada, to convert HMCS Onondaga, a submarine of the Royal Canadian Navy, disarmed in June 2000. Launched by the Canadian War Museum (CWM) in 2000, the Onondaga conversion project was abandoned by the museum in 2002 due to a lack of funding. The SHMP, which has been interested in a museum submarine project since 2000, is conducting a feasibility study in 2003 demonstrating the potential for profitability of the project and acquired Onondaga in 2005.

In 2006, the SHMP began working with governments to finance the project and meet environmental requirements. It also identifies the submarine installation site, parallel to the Pointe-au-Père wharf. This choice entails an increase in installation costs, forcing the museum to reduce the concept of the exhibition and to develop a haulage method using a rail to reduce costs. The SHMP finally gets financial support from governments in early 2008.
