La Maison de l’Acadie

The Maison de l'Acadie is located in the North Vienne in the town of La Chaussée, about fifteen kilometers from Loudun.

Under the leadership of Richelieu, families will migrate to New France. Take a dip in the past and relive the history of these Loudunais who left in the XNUMXth century to populate New France. Also discover the local characters who have marked the great history of these territories of the North American continent.

The purpose of the Maison de l'Acadie association is to animate the site and perpetuate Acadian history in Poitou as well as to promote the genealogical research that has been carried out to find pioneer families from Loudun.
