After the Crash of 1929 left him in financial ruins, Kenneth Molson committed suicide. His summer home was passed down to the Maclean family, who called it “Brandy Pots.” Today, this large summer home is a private residence occupied year-round. Vieux Saint-Patrice, where this house can be found, is now a protected heritage site.
