Richmond

Sector Val-Saint-François Population: 3,200

On the Townships Trail, Richmond, named in honour of the colony’s Governor General, Charles Lennox, the fourth Duke of Richmond, had a prosperous past thanks to the railway in particular. The town has many heritage buildings: the old railway station (1883), converted into a restaurant; the Centre d’Art de Richmond, in the former Mont Saint-Patrice convent (1884); and St. Bibiane’s Roman Catholic Church (1880) located nearby. The old English neighbourhood is the site of a tour highlighting at least 36 heritage buildings. After crossing the iron bridge, on the other side of the St. Francis River you’ll find St. Paul’s (1889), a French Presbyterian church, which now houses the Centre d'interprétation de l'ardoise slate interpretation centre. Of particular appeal to outdoor enthusiasts are the water sports park that offers boat rentals on the river, the Route Verte and the Sentiers de l'Estrie cycling and hiking trails through the area.
