North Hatley

North Hatley

Located at the outlet of Lake Massawippi, “lake of deep waters,” North Hatley was originally called the Outlet. It was first populated by the Abenakis, who hunted, fished, and held their ceremonies along the St. Francis River. In 1792, Ebenezer Hovey, captain of the militia in Connecticut, and Henry Cull submitted their request to the British Crown to obtain a concession of lands, which they received on March 25, 1803.

North Hatley was founded in 1897 at the northern tip of Lake Massawippi. Like its neighbouring village of Hatley, North Hatley grew thanks to the effort of immigrants gathered under the Company of Associates, whose goal was to obtain concessions in Lower Canada. In 1880, the construction of a rail line consolidated the village reputation as a resort, to the point that between 1902 and 1909, it reached a peak in numbers of tourists.

Canton de Shefford

Canton de Shefford

Founded in 1792 by Loyalists who fled the United States, Shefford Township has a rich history of pioneer and rural life. At the eastern limit of the Haute-Yamaska region, the old hamlet of Frost Village, named after the Frost brothers who founded it, features several beautiful specimens of local heritage. They are the last vestiges of a community that for a brief time rivaled Waterloo in size.

Today, Shefford is a semi-rural municipality. The landscape is dominated by Shefford Mountain, which offers several beautiful perspectives on the region. Part of the bike trail Estriade is also located here, to the south of the Mountain, as well as Parc écologique Jean-Paul Forand and its walking trails. The region’s 200 km of small secondary roads are great for cycling expeditions.
