The Morrin Centre is a cultural centre in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. It is designed to educate the public about the historic contribution and present-day culture of local English-speakers. The centre contains the private English-language library of the Literary and Historical Society of Quebec, heritage spaces for events, and interpretation services.
This site has housed four different functions:
- Royal Redoubt (1712–1808)
- Quebec City Common Gaol (1813–1868)
- Morrin College (1862-c1902)
- Literary and Historical Society of Quebec (1868–present)
In 2004, the Literary and Historical Society of Quebec became owners of the historic site through an emphyteutic lease. In the last decade, the Society has broadened its mandate. The building was entirely renovated, and transformed into the Morrin Centre, which not only houses the library but also acts as Quebec City’s English-language cultural centre and a historical interpretation site.
