dc.descriptionDetail of entrance door and plaque; stone quoins at corner; Located in the centre of a Renaissance-inspired plan designed by Jesuits in 1637, the Trait-Carré represents one of Quebec City’s four historic districts and one of the first examples in North America of a planned community. The first chapel on the site was constructed of wood in 1666-1674. Built to the design of Thomas Baillairgé, the present stone church was consecrated in 1830, and was classified a historic monument in 1959. Added in 1887, a second stone sacristy, a floor and a half and topped with a mansard roof, is attached at right angles to the first. It is part of Sacre Coeur Park which contains the rectory, the former convent of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd, the parish hall and the former college of the Marist Brothers. The new Charlesbourg Public Library is next door. Source: Répertoire du patrimoine culturel du Québec; http://www.patrimoine-culturel.gouv.qc.ca/ (accessed 5/19/2015)en_US
