Nantes

Sector Megantic Region Population: 1,386

Between Stornoway and Lac-Mégantic where the road once crossed the railway, you’ll find the municipality of Nantes, also known as Spring Hill. Around 1856, Scottish colonists McRae, Murdo and Murray set up their makeshift camp on this site. Known by the Gaelic name Drum-A-Vack, these camps formed the base of a colony bolstered by French-Canadian families in 1905. A railway station and post office were added in 1879 and in 1898, two sawmills, two telegraph stations and two general stores became part of the town. Nantes benefits from Lakes Whitton, McKenzie and Orignal – all close by and strikingly clean and clear. The citizens of Nantes are proud of their Christmas tree farms, most of which supply American homes with their annual traditions.
