 History
L'auberge grand mere à été bati en 1896 par la compagnie Laurentide pour heberger ses nouveaux travailleurs et dirigeants. Avant sa demolition à l'automne 2010, c'était le plus vieux batiment de la ville de Grand mere. Ce batiment a fait couler beaucoup d'encre au travers des années. Les premiers scandales ont commencé quand l'ex premier ministre Jean Chretien avait vendu ses parts en 1993 juste avant d'etre elu premier ministre du Canada, par la suite il a été accusé d'avoir forcé un peu le dossier pour que l'auberge puisse avoir des prets et subventions de pres de 800000$ , il avait été accusé de favoritisme, parce que c'était un habitant de cette region et ancien propriétaire de l'auberge! Ensuite en 2004, un incendie detruit une bonne partie de lauberge et le propriétaire est arreté un mois plus tard, accusé d'incendie criminel dans son auberge et de tentative de fraude au pers de la compagnie d'assurance! Comme par hasard quelques heures avant l'incendie, des clients d'une des ailes de l'auberge avaient été deplacé dans des chambres plus éloignées! La partie datant de 1896 reste debout mais est tres endommagé, meme si elle etait protegé par la ville comme etant un batiment du patrimoine, le nouveau propriétaire a tellement laissé trainer le dossier que le batiment s'est degradé durant les années et ils ont fini par le demolir au mois d'octobre 2010........pour faire place a de jolie condo!! Probablement que c'était le plan que le nouveau proprio avait deja en tete en achetant!!
