1803-1865

French:
Au cours des années 1850 vécut ici Augustin-Norbert Morin, né le 13 octobre 1803 à Saint-Michel-de-Bellechasse. Avocat, journaliste et homme politique, il fut tour à tour fondateur du journal La Minerve en 1826, orateur à l'Assemblée législative de la province du Canada de 1848 à 1851, puis chef du gouvernement de 1851 à 1855, conjointement avec Francis Hincks, puis Allan MacNab.
Fervent patriote, Augustin-Norbert Morin fut, avec Louis-Joseph Parineau, le principal rédacteur en 1834 des 92 Résolutions. Il consacra les dernières années de sa vie à la redaction du Code civil du Bas-Canada, entré en vigueur un an après son décès survenu à Sainte-Adele le 27 juillet 1865.
