The Société Historique Sartigan Inc. was founded in 1992 by MM Andre Bisson, Andre Garant, Yves Thibault, Yvon Thibaudeau and Raymonde Gilbert and a group of people wishing to put forth the history of the Saint-Georges de Beauce region. Soon after, MM. Jean Guy Dionne, René Bérubé, Jacques Petit and Anne Dutil joined the founders.
Following the presentation of an exhibition on the first entrepreneurs of the region, the Historical Society set up the Centre d'interprétation of the Entrepreneurship Beauceron.
As the historical society did not have a place to present the exhibition, the sacristy of Saint-George church was used as the exhibition place.
Then, Mrs. Raymonde Gilbert and Mr. Dionne got the city of Saint-George to purchase the Convent of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd wich was renamed Marie Fitzbach Cultural Center, where our offices are.
The Sartigan Historical Society Inc. set up the Beauce Entrepreneuship Museum which relates the history of the economic development of the Beauce region.
Other exhibitions were also presented such as :
The Society is the depository of more than a thousand fanily collections including photographs and documentations about our region and its development.
