Administrative history

Funded in 1974 under the federal government Opportunities for Youth grant programme "A la Decouverte de la Republique", the Madawaska building project was designed to identify historic or notable buildings in the Madawaska area and to prepare a profile on each. Such profiles were to include names of owners, building plans, a sketch of the location, details of construction, information on the building's history, and photographs. The project workers responsible for compiling the information were, Rodolphe Caron, Luc Albert, Michelle Maltais, Kenneth Babin, Lèo G. Thèriault, Robert Saucier, and Normand Corno. In all they prepared profiles of 26 buildings.

Custodial history

Information about the custody of these records prior to acquisition is incomplete.
