First Mother House
The stable-school, the first school in Ville-Marie and first Mother House of the Congregation (1658-1671), was situated between present day Saint-Paul Street and the Saint Lawrence River. This illustration was imagined by the artist from the description made by Marguerite Bourgeoys in her writings.
