Français:
C’est une des vieilles maisons de Montebello. Sa construction remonterait à 1883, douze ans après le décès du Seigneur, et appartenait à Louis Dominique Fortin. Lors du décès de son épouse, Élizabeth Boult, il se remarie à Adelina Bélair qui vendra la maison à Alex Sauriol. En 1917, Monsieur Cyrille Lefebvre en fait l’acquisition du citoyen Sauriol et en sera le propriétaire jusqu’à sa mort en 1966.

Monsieur Lefebvre a été très proche de la famille Papineau. Il travaille pour la famille et, au fil des ans, fait l’acquisition d’objets, de lettres de la famille Papineau. Il est également gardien de la chapelle funéraire. À son décès en 1966, ses collections sont remises aux archives du Canada.

Cette maison est située sur la rue Notre-Dame mais, avant que la municipalité ne change le nom des rues du village, en 1912, la rue s’appelait « rue des Ormes » comme l’avait nommée le seigneur Papineau. La maison a subi des transformations majeures en 1994 et en 2003. Son aspect extérieur toutefois n’a pas été altéré.

back to 1883, twelve years after the death of the Seigneur and belonged to Louis Dominique Fortin. After the death of his wife Elizabeth Boult, he married Adelina Bélair who then sold the house to Alex Sauriol. In 1917, Mr. Cyrille Lefebvre bought it from Sauriol and stayed the owner until he died in 1966.

Mr. Lefebvre was very close to the Papineau family. He worked for the family and over time he came to have a collection of objects and letters from the family. He was also keeper of the funeral chapel. After his death in 1966, his collections were given to Canadian archives.

The house is on Notre-Dame street, however before the municipality changed the name of the village streets in 1912, the road was called "rue des Ormes" (or Elm street), as it was named by Seigneur Papineau. Many major transformations were made to the house in 1994 and in 2003. The exterior has not been altered.
