RESTAURANT L’ESTACADE ( open only by reservation for groups of 30 people or more)

Our restaurant is named l’Estacade in relation with the wood used for structure of the building. Our booms come from the paper mill Price Brothers Co. Alma, known as AbitibiBowater today and were used to retain “timbers” on the Petite Décharge during the operations of timber floating in Pulp and paper industry.

The booms were composed of parts of BC Fir, length of 13 meters (40 ft.) attached in bundles of four, all linked by chains. These behemoths come from British Columbia, hence the name “British Columbia Fir tree” or “Douglas Fir”. This tree can reach a height of 115 meters (380 ft) and live almost 800 years! These beams arrived by train between 1925 and 1939 and spent over 60 years at the water surface.
