[194-?]. - Photograph of the James Carter House in Gaspé. "This heritage building was built between 1842 and 1845 by George LeGros and purchased by James Carter in 1848. The elevated site where the residence is located provides an exceptional view of the Gaspé Bay and Bay of Gaspé. When James died, the house was bequeathed to his son Alfred Theodore Carter. The latter, vice-consul of the United States, added two towers to the house. Today, the James Carter House is at the center of the Motel Plante hotel."
