Facility:Grosse Ile and the Irish Memorial National Historic Site of Canada
Description:Grosse Ile and the Irish Memorial National Historic Site commemorates three significant aspects of Canada history: first, the importance of immigration to Canada, particularly through Quebec City, from the early 19th century until World War I; second, the tragedies of Irish immigrants, especially due to the 1847 typhus epidemic; and finally Grosse Ile's role from 1832 to 1937 as a quarantine station for the Port of Quebec, long the main point of arrival for immigrants coming to Canada.
