Keys to History

This museum room, named Elgin in honour of the famous Governor General of Canada who had offices in the "château" in the 1840s, displayed portraits of a number of historical figures, including many from New France. A few of these portraits were already very old in 1900, but most were commissioned at the time of the opening of the museum.
