Sentier du Parc historique de la Poudrière de Windsor

Parc historique de La Poudrière de Windsor

Founded in 1864 in the wake of the American Civil War, the Windsor Powder Mill produced black powder, one of the essential components for explosives. Until 1922, the town of Windsor in Quebec made its living from this very dangerous industry. During the summer, enjoy a theatrical guided tour through the vestiges of the buildings that made up the factory, as well as an engaging multi-sensory show. Nature lovers will appreciate the park’s stunning ecological discoveries. Personalized service, a souvenir shop, audio guides, a terrace, and a picnic area are among the services offered.
