Wakeham Hall was a symbol and centre of anglophone community life in Gaspé Bay for more than a century, and the subject of this touching tribute by retired nurse and author Ruth Miller Armstrong.

In this passage, adapted from Armstrong’s book, Memories of Upper Wakeham, the story behind the little building, its function as a dance and reception hall, theatre, meeting place and election station is recounted.

Built in 1907, the community hall was demolished by municipal order in 2012 against the wishes of local heritage preservationists, who had hoped to find support to restore and repurpose the historic building.

Narrated by Jean Goodier.
