The location of the 1955 landslide today

Red-brick house near Marguerite-D'Youville Park in Nicolet

This house, built on high ground just outside the area flattened by the landslide that hit Nicolet on November 12, 1955, barely escaped the disaster. Today, the area where the ground collapsed has become Marguerite-D'Youville Park. The Rue du 12-Novembre running along the park was named in memory of the tragic incident.
