The Maison Trestler Foundation

Built at the end of the 18th century, the Maison Trestler was preserved by the creation in 1977 of the Fondation de la Maison Trestler, which ensures its conservation by developing cultural activities.
Its mission

The Foundation’s mission is to ensure the longevity of this magnificent ancestral house, (former home and general store) which is in fact one of the most splendid in Québec, and to promote its mission as a stage where art and culture are showcased in our region.

Its goals and objectives

 

To develop programs and guided tours that promote the history and architecture of this outstanding monument that is recognized at the provincial (1976) and federal (1969) levels and named by the public as one of the Seven Wonders of Vaudreuil-Soulanges (2008) with respect to heritage value. Since early 2005, we have been offering visitors an interpretation concept that illustrates the importance of the Trestler family and tells the story of their exceptional home and its evolution after two centuries in existence by situating visitors in time and space and by introducing different characters who lived in and visited the home.

To always strive above and beyond and to offer music lovers a top quality classical and contemporary music program that enjoys an enviable national and international reputation. 

We must not forget to mention the promotion of masterpieces by major artists in the field of visual arts, which serve as a complement to music… These are exhibited in the Antoine-Aimé-Dorion Gallery and in the Rainville Room.

Structure

La Fondation de la Maison Trestler is a private, non-profit foundation managed by a board of directors comprising 10 members. 

La Maison Trestler has created a well-structured volunteer association. (Close to 30 active and dedicated volonteers).

Every year we open our doors to music lovers, visual art enthusiasts, as well as history and architecture buffs.
