Stornoway

Sector Megantic Region Population: 543

Stornoway, whose church steeple can be seen at the top of a hill, is well-situated at the crossroads of routes 161 and 108, a natural junction now designated a Village-Relais (designation that the town or village provides essential roadside services as well as a safe and attractive place to stop). Its name was chosen by its Scottish founders as a reminder of the main town on the Isle of Lewis in Scotland. Three cemeteries serve as the final resting places of the first pioneers and a monument that faces the church recalls the history of the founding families. The Catholic Church (1920) has a superb statue of Saint-Alphonse by renowned sculptor Louis Jobin. At the Summit Drive intersection, with a stunning view of the mountains and the nearby Parc National de Frontenac provincial park, there is a stop featuring information panels and an illuminated star finder, in line with the Mount Mégantic International Dark Sky Reserve’s theme. On Route 161, along the banks of the Legendre River, a former flour mill is a tangible sign of the arrival of French Canadians.
