The miller's house
The miller's house, an unfortunate disappearance

Built during the 18th century, the house inhabited by the successive millers of the water mills in Lachine met with an unfortunate fate in April 1971. Not very knowledgeable about the heritage value of the building, the City of LaSalle allowed a fire drill to be held there, despite the outcry on the part of the Société historique de LaSalle, which failed to convince the population of the relevance of protecting this built heritage. 



The fieldstone house was solid, however, with its very thick walls which, according to the testimony of Jeannine Lussier (née Murphy), who had lived there in her youth, "the exterior stone didn't touch the stone inside".
