A history park

In 1660, this strategic location played a decisive role in the battle opposing the French and its Huron allies to the Iroquois.

Attacked in Carillon by the latter, the young military chief Adam Dollard des Ormeaux and his troops were massacred after having resisted to the siege for several days, thereby saving the colony.

Close to 300 years later, clergyman Lionel Groulx, who was about to become a religious canon, became one of the most prominent instigators for the recognition of Dollard des Ormeaux as a national hero by decree. A commemoration monument honoring the soldier was erected in 1919 in the village of Carillon. Nearby, the Carillon Park harbors an imposing abstract memorial. Composed of 18 monoliths, the masterpiece represents the 17 companions as well as the Indian nations that fought alongside Dollard des Ormeaux. The work of art is a creation of the writer and architect Jacques Folch-Ribas, in collaboration respectively with the painter and sculptor Paul Borduas and Jordi Bonet.
