Located in the parc des Chutes-de-la-Petite-Rivière-Bostonnais, guide-animators will welcome you with pleasure to the Anne-Stillman-McCormick Center and will make you discover the wonderful world of this woman, romanticized by the Quebec author Louise Lacoursière.
The wealthy James A. Stillman, president of the National City Bank, accuses his wife, Anne, owner since 1918 of a domain in Haute-Mauricie, to have committed an infidelity with a Native American guide of this sector. This resounding divorce trial has long been considered the "trial of the century". She got her divorce later and remarried with John D. Rockefeller's grandson, Fowler McCormick, who had inherited one of America's biggest fortunes. Come follow Anne's relationship with Fowler, as well as the career of this man at International Harvester, the world's largest farm machinery company. The story of this colorful character is fascinating.
On May 25, 1969, Anne Stillman McCormick died in Scottsdale, Arizona. His last words are "Take me back to Canada". Her ashes are immured in a cliff not far from her estate of Grande-Anse, which was her favorite refuge, where she could forget her constraints as a woman of the world.
