Moulin Légaré - Visite touristique du Vieux-Saint-Eustache

Moulin Légaré is North America’s oldest water-driven flourmill still in operation. Built in 1762, it has been designated a national historic site and is located in the very heart of Old Saint-Eustache in an enchanting setting beside rivière du Chêne. The miller produces wheat and buckwheat flour the old-fashioned way.

The miller still produces wheat and buckwheat flour, using ancestral methods with the original millstones.  It is possible to get flour on site!  The functionning of the ancient mechanisms are explained by passionate costumed guides. In 1976, the mill was listed cultural property by the government of Québec and in 2000, it was listed National Historic Site of Canada.

The entrance fee includes access to the exhibition rooms of La Maison de la Culture et du Patrimoine (manoir Globensky). Don't miss the "galette" (buckwheat flour pancakes) and country flavours Festival, the third weekend of September.
