The historical Eastern Townships region has greatly evolved over the past few decades. Today, this tourist region that is home to several British and American traditions is divided into several sub-regions such as Estrie (Richmond, Sherbrooke, Stanstead), the Montérégie (Missisquoi, Brome, Shefford), and the Appalachian Uplands (Wolfe, Frontenac, Compton, Megantic).
In two parts, Quebec’s Eastern Townships – A Brief History of its Peoples, Politics and Economy tells the story of the region’s unique history and lets you discover its past. What do Americans have to do with the regions development, what is the story behind the lone pine in the Saint Francis River and what is the Irish Orange Lodge doing in the Townships?
The publications are available in French and English. You can order the publications directly through the ETRC.
