Architecture tour in town

 A group of architecture aficionados pose for a picture after touring the historic buildings in Portage du Fort. The area is home to a number of unique stone buildings in the area, including what is thought to be the oldest stone church in the Outaouais.

Those who took the walking tour were greeted by a delicious spread prepared by the ladies of the CWL. From left: Leora Venne, Georgina O’Connor and Linda Schminkel take a break from feeding those who were out on the walking tour.

A crowd of architecture aficionados could be seen roaming around Portage du Fort on Saturday during the Artistes de la Rivière walking tour of the town.
Onlookers were brought to several of the stone buildings that dot the town as they were told of the history of each building.
One of the last stops was the old stone church which is considered one of the oldest churches in the Outaouais.
