AAA Editor Notes

Val-Jalbert Historic Village (Village Historique de Val-Jalbert), 95 rue Saint-Georges, preserves the remains of Val-Jalbert, a once thriving early 20th-century industrial village. This ultramodern company town served the workers of a pulp mill; the earliest structures were built in 1901. The village was abandoned in 1927. Today, a convent school, a general store and rows of period houses can be seen, either on foot or by guided tour aboard the site’s old trolleybus. Hiking and bicycling paths are accessible. A cable car operating May 28-October 10 takes visitors to a scenic overlook above Ouiatchouan Falls and lac St-Jean. Camping is permitted. Picnicking is permitted. Food is available.
Admission with cable car $28.27; $14.35 (ages 6-16); $66.54 (family, two adults and children ages 0-16); $46.97 (family, one adult and up to three children).
Hours: Daily 9-6, mid-June to mid-Aug.; daily 10-5, late May to mid-June and mid-Aug. to early Oct. Allow 3 hours minimum.
