“The buildings comprising Auberge du Trésor and Bistro 1640 are built on a rich historical site. In 1740, a half-timber house standing at the corner of Sainte-Anne and Du Trésor becomes the only permanent housing for the French regime in New France. It would become known as the home of the Company of the One Hundred Associates, with 100 shareholders appointed by Richelieu, and of which Samuel de Champlain was a member. This company was granted a monopoly over fur trade for 15 years and a monopoly over all other trade for perpetuity. In return, the company agreed to administer the colony, bring in over 4,000 colonists, defend the territory, and convert the Indians. It was this company that made it possible to start the great adventure known as New France. In 1713, Jean Lerouge, the king’s surveyor, built a one-storey stone house on the site. Today, some of the walls and vaults of the inn are remnants of that house.”
