Summary

The excavations carried out for three years in Plaisance Park, the cradle of the Lordship of the Petite-Nation, indicate that the remains and artifactual concentrations are associated with three separate houses, wooden houses, presumably piece by piece type. One of these house was clearly more rudimentary building so it is likely the Trading Post or Fort de la Petite-Nation. The second housing coated with plaster walls and structural elements of stone, seems to have been designed for continuous and prolonged occupation and would be the first house built in by the illustrious Papineau family in Lordship Petite-Nation. The third building is associated with the farm Valcourt (1826-1835). The excavations resulted in the collection of thousands of artifacts related to the three (3) homes built in late 18th and early 19th century.
