[19--?]. - Photograph of the monastery of the Sisters of Christ the King in Gaspé. The building was built in 1854 by Jean-Collet Belleau. It was then occupied by Charles Sutton Leboutillier, the American Consular Agency and the Bishopric of Gaspé.

In 1931, it was donated to the Missionary Sisters of Christ the King by Bishop Ross. The religious community occupied the building until 1972.

Converted into a brewery, it was unfortunately destroyed by fire in 1978.
