The Charles Robin
Administration Centre

 

Centre administratif Charles Robin
Built around 1835, this sober yet elegant dwelling housed the administration quarters of the Charles Robin Company (1776 - c. 1886). This Norman-style structure was much more imposing before losing its left section along with much of its surface. Covered with metal sheeting, the gable-top roof features on its south side five single-slope dormer windows with small-pane hung windows. The oceanside facade has two large small-pane windows symmetrically placed on either side of a large central door, above which lays a transom board enhanced by a broad cornice.
