Centre d'histoire Arvida - Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean
The Arvida Heritage Centre, situated in the city of Saguenay, will let you discover the history of Arvida, a company town unique in the world! Both a National Historic Site of Canada and recognised as a heritage site by the Quebec government, Arvida will charm you with the architectural variety of its houses, its sophisticated urban plan, and the unique history of its construction in 135 days. The importance of the contribution of its aluminum smelter during the Second World War confirms its international standing. A stroll around Davis Square will offer you a chance to discover its dynamic and authentic living environment. The City of Aluminum and its population welcome you to its open-air museum.
