When you think about Shediac, you think about the ocean, beach, boats and lobsters! But Shediac is much more than that; it’s a cultural and a historical town that is central to the Acadian community.

A good example of this is the Pascal-Poirier Historic House – a House of Artisans. Built in 1825, this charming house reveals several secrets, including one of the owners—the first Canadian Senator Pascal Poirier—and features a number of know-hows through the Shediac knitters and Hookeuses.

Come meet these charismatic artisans in a magnificent historic house, and don’t forget to share your experience by using the hashtags #MaisonHistoriquePP and #RFMSE.
