The Doiron House was built in 1841 by Joseph Doiron, a writer, justice of the peace and prosperous Acadian farmer. It was a luxurious Acadian home for its time. The preservation of its original masonry is part of its unique character, and the only Acadian house known to still have its original hearth.
Financially well off, Mr. Doiron had a very spacious house built for himself, which also served as an Acadian school, a meeting place, and a venue for community debates. This house is an important contribution to Acadia and our Acadian history.
The house was handed down from generation to generation to Joseph Doiron’s descendants, until the acquired by the City of Dieppe in 2016, with the aim of perpetuating the history of this part of the region’s heritage.
