Seigneurial manor site where the second seigneur, Aleandre (Isaac) Berthier, lived as well as the Rigauville, Dunière-Dénéchaud families. Today this site is called Hameau Dunière-Dénéchaud in honor of the last two seigneur of the Seigneurie of Bellechasse, Louis Durière (1723-1806) and Claude Dénéchaud (1768-1836).
At the time of construction of the quay in 1853, the site was occupied by a set of buildings for maritime trade and agriculture. They included the manor house, farm houses, a barn, a cooper's shop, a dairy and a cooler and two windmills.
The seigneurie of Berthier (or Bellechasse) evokes the memory of Alexander Berthier, captian of the Carignan regiment, to whom the seigneurie was granted October 29, 1672.
The stone fireplace indicates the location of the second manor house rebuilt on this historic site in the early nineteenth century by Louis Dunière and then inhabited by Claude Dénéchaud. Despite many efforts to preserve it, the Dénéchaud manor became dilapidated and was demolished in 1994.

French:

Site du domaine seigneurial où ont vécu le deuxième seigneur, Alexandre (Isaac) Berthier, ainsi que les familles de Rigauville, Dunière-Dénéchaud. Ce site porte aujourd'hui le nom de Hameau Dunière-Dénéchaud en l'honneur des deux derniers seigneurs de la seigneurie de Bellechasse, Louis Dunière (1723-1806) et Claude Dénéchaud (1768-1836).
Au moment de la construction de quai en 1853, le site était occupé par un ensemble de bâtiments destinés au commerce maritime et à l'agriculture. On y retrouvait le manoir seigneurial, les maisons de ferme, une grange-étable, une boutique de tonnelier, une laiterie et une glacière ainsi que deux moulins à vent.
La seigneurie de Berthier (ou Bellechasse) évoque le souvenir d'Alexandre Berthier, capitaine du regiment de Carignan, à qui elle fut concédée le 29 octobre 1672.
La cheminée en pierre témoigne de l'emplacement du 2ᵉ manoir reconstruit sur ce site historique au début du XIXᵉ siècle par Louis Dunière puis habité par Claude Dénéchaud. Malgré bien des efforts déployés pour sa conservation, le manoir Dénéchaud, devenu vétuste, est démoli en 1994.
