This house was built in the early 1920 and was the second house built in Moonbeam. The Moonbeam Gallery opened its doors in February 2006. The Gallery is a place for local and regional artists and artisans to gather, to share and work with different mediums such as drawing, painting, sewing, weaving, sculpting and so much more. It is also a place to appreciate the heritage and history of our community and surrounding region.
In 1912, Joseph Dufour, William St-Aubin, Phidime and Théodule Léonard (all related) came here for a visit. These members of the Léonard clan, like all those who followed, were recruited among relatives from their home parishes or people they met in their travels; an effort was made to bring together friends and acquaintances.
To Highlight and strengthen community and area affiliations and to revive the taste for arts and regional culture in our population
To take the initiative to organize special events and fundraisers so that the Gallery can be self-sufficient
To increase the participation of people in our community and the area
