The NDPS Historical Center is dedicated to the history of the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Perpetual Help. The permanent exhibition covers a period that extends from 1892 to the present day, describing, with the help of objects collected over time, the life of the community and its commitment to the poor, anyone in need, adapting to different times, cultures and places. With the services of a guide-interpreter, be sure to also visit the conventual site, the Maison Souvenir, first presbytery of the village, and the magnificent chapel of Sainte-Anne-des-Montagnes, a place of traditional pilgrimage.
