Mansonville (Canton de Potton)

Sector Memphrémagog

Potton Township was created by the King of England in 1797. As of 1789, a Loyalist settled in Potton East on the shores of Lake Memphremagog (now Vale Perkins). Another settled in 1793 in South Potton (Highwater). In 1796, Henry Ruiter established himself in West Potton (Dunkin). A ferry began operating as of 1797 between East Potton Landing (Knowlton Landing) and Georgeville. Mills were built next to the Missisquoi North rapids and Mansonville began to take shape (1803). L’Aubergine stagecoach inn was built at Knowlton Landing in 1828 and is still in operation today. Owl’s Head Mountain House was built in 1845 and was only accessible via Lake Memphremagog. A hotel was built in Potton Springs in 1875 at the foot of a sulphurous spring. Previously this area was a transit point for the Abenakis and it is along their portage route that the “Indian stone” engraved with petroglyphs was found. Pottonread more >
