Le T.E. Draper/Chantier Gédéon

The T.E. Draper was classified as a cultural property in 1979 and was the most important lumber tugboat on the Lac des Quinze hired by Canadian International Paper (C.I.P.) from 1929 to 1972. Climb aboard the tug and relive the history of log driving in the Témiscamingue region. Continue your journey to the Chantier Gédéon, a true reconstruction of a lumber camp from the 1930s and 1940s. Discover, through its buildings and its path in the forest, the life of the men who prepared the log driving season.
