Jacques Cartier owner of a Manor House
In 1541, before his last trip to Canada, Cartier acquired a small XVth century farm house
After, his last trip he transformed the farm house into a splendid country manor. The new addition to the house contained a third floor with a tower adding opulence to the house. Therefore, we often refer to cartier's manor as the first Malouinière.
After the last vayages, Cartier split his time between his residence in Saint-Malo, on Buhen Street (now Chateaubriand street) and his manor, the only remaining where Cartier lived.
At the biginning of the XVIIth century, the manor become a farm house and remained as such until 1978.
