Title
Grosse Île: un parc national
Abstract
Recognized by the federal government for its national historic significance in 1974, Grosse Île and the Irish Memorial National Historic Site opened its doors to visitors in the early 1990s. For over a century the island served as a quarantine station, but it is most closely associated with the thousands of Irish immigrants who died and were buried on island in 1847 after fleeing their homeland following the potato famine in Ireland.
