AAA Editor Notes

Sir William Price Heritage Center (Centre d'historie Sir-William-Price) is at 1994 rue Price. The museum tells the story of a sawmill and paper business founded by William Price, an English lumber merchant, in the 1800s. The permanent exhibit, Works on Paper, features a collection of employee portraits that were originally commissioned by Price Co. management to honor workers. From 1930-60, Francesco Lacurto produced 110 pastel portraits; another 10 were created by Kathleen Shackleton. Although most of the original pieces are now in private collections, several copies are on display in the St. James the Apostle Anglican Chapel, where church services for the company's staff were held 1912-66. Temporary exhibitions and guided walking tours of Kénogami, the former company town, also are offered. Guided tours are available. Time: Allow 1 hour minimum.
