Auberge Saint-Antoine is located in Québec City’s Old Port, on Îlot Hunt, a historically significant property situated just opposite the majestic St. Lawrence River. As a result, the Auberge is an integral part of Québec City’s history. In its early days, the Îlot Hunt property was used as a wharf, then a cannon battery, and then by British merchants when Québec City was one of North America’s biggest ports. Each of the three buildings and structures still standing today boasts great historical significance.

During the construction of Auberge Saint-Antoine, a final large-scale archaeological dig was held that led to the discovery of a number of new artifacts, some of which date back to the 1600s. The objects discovered shed new light on a part of Québec City’s history. These precious items were documented and restored by the conservation centre in order to be displayed in the hotel.

The Tailor

Mr. Gaudiose Montreuil, a tailor living at 12 rue Saint-Antoine in the late 19th century, often used buttons made of bone, some of which were produced in Québec City. Button makers sliced bone into thin layers and cut out discs that were then pierced with holes, decorated, and polished.
