Construite en 1882 par l'entrepreneur Alexander Solomon Walbridge, cette grange-?table est form?e de douze murs pignons dispos autour d'un espace central. Le b?timent comporte deux niveaux: un premier qui servait d'?table et un second, divis? en plusieurs espaces, dont des tasseries, le tout organis? autour d'une plaque tournante destin?e ? faciliter l'engrangement des r?coltes.

Ce b?timent est la plus ancienne grange polygonale du Qu?bec et la seule qui ait douze c?t. Son astucieux m?canisme rotatif et son architecture originale reprentent fort bien l'ing?niosit? de son concepteur.

La grange Alexander-Solomon-Walbridge a ?t? class?e monument historique le 27 mai 2004 par la Ministre de la Culture et des Communications.

[English Translation:]

Built in 1882 by Alexander Solomon Walbridge, this barn has twelve sides and twelve gables arranged around a central space. The building comprises two levels: the first level was a stable and the second was divided into several sections, all organized around a central turntable designed to facilitate storing the harvest.

This building is the oldest non-traditional, multi-sided barn in Qu?bec and the only one to have twelve sides. The revolutionary rotating mechanism and unique architecture of the barn are a testament to its designer's ingenuity.

The Alexander-Solomon-Walbridge barn was classified a historic monument on May 27th 2004 by the Ministre de la Culture et des Communications du Qu?bec.
