We love historical dwellings. Formely a Scottish holding, in which still live some descendants, the City of Scotstown owes its foundation to the building of the railroad from sea to sea. The unevenness and ups and downs of the Salmon River lent itself to the erection of a hydro-electric dam situated where the Glasgow Canadian Land and Trust Company decided to set up their installations, hence the development of a Hamlet around 1872 which later officially became the city of Scotstown in 1892.
Today, this picturesque little city situated in the foothills of Mount Mégantic, continues to live from the forest and its by-products, but also from the tourist industry and businesses related to herbalism and organic products. With its four steeples, calling to mind its rich religious past, this sympathetic village has preserved several dwellings typical of the 19th century eastern township architecture.
A Step into the Past
The Haut Saint-François area was first colonized by British and Scottish families. It is renowned for its pulp and paper industry. The area is full of natural and non-exploited resources, and has a diversified flora and fauna, like the white-tailed deer and moose.
The sunsets you will see here are incomparable with any you have ever seen. In the area, you can see mountains, agricultural land, open spaces and rushing streams. Nowadays, visitors can still see the Anglo-Saxon influence on the houses and churches, and a great number of buildings in the region are classified historical monuments.
