Villa des Hirondelles

In 1901, Onésime Lambert, real estate speculator and general merchant, built this house for his family. On a high spot, the Lambert residence covered a vast area; the property that is currently occupied by the Caisse Desjardins was at the time their orchard. Beyond Wilfrid-Laurier Street, you’ll find a large maple grove that belonged to Onésime Lambert and his associate, Johnny Martin.

In 1903, the house was connected to electricity, and in 1906, it got its telephone line. In some ways, this home also played a role in the community. Indeed Onésime Lambert hosted many festivities there and received Bromptonville’s residents for large celebrations such as the Feast of Corpus Christi and the Fête Nationale.

Onésime Lambert died in December 1932. His children and grand-children lived there until 1947. The house became too large for the family and it was sold to the Campbell family who kept it until the 1970s.

Nowadays, this large dwelling contains several apartments.
