Take your pick: adrenaline packed or slow and contemplative?
Characterized by a wealth of history and heritage, this Cœur villageois has dozens of unique attractions born of its unusual past – the Loyalist circuit, the Townships Trail and four magnificent churches.
Did you know that at one-time Eaton-Corner was bigger than the city of Sherbrooke? This is one of many interesting historic facts (as well as some fascinating unique exhibits) that you’ll discover at the Eaton Corner Museum.
In addition to serving as a tourist office, the Maison de la culture John Henry Pope is a former presbytery where local artists also display their work.
Start your visit by the Information Tourism Office, where you'll be warmly welcome and given all the informations you need to make the most of the area.
The Maison de la culture John-Henry Pope (it’s named for Sir John Henry Pope, a key player in the history of the Eastern Townships) will provide you with useful information for your tour of the village.
Besides that, you can follow one of the heritage trails that criss-cross this Cœur villageois and which highlight the architectural legacy of the English, American and Scottish settlers. The village school, which was the first one to be constructed in the Eastern Townships, was built in the Anglo-Saxon style.
The parc des Braves is located in the heart of the village where you can stop for a rest, eat a picnic or attend a free concert during the summer weekends. In addition to enjoying those special moments you’ll see a “callanish” – an arrangement of standing stones of the type found in Scotland around 3000 BC. They were believed to track the passages of the moon and these ones commemorate the Scots who came to this corner of Quebec. You can also pass the time by reading the different interpretation panels that explain various aspects of Cookshire-Eaton’s history.
At nightfall, check out Les Murmures du Canton, a multimedia show that brings the history of the region to life through sound, light, and projections on buildings surrounding Parc des Braves.
From the Cœur villageois, you can follow the trails along the lovely Eaton River, leading to the 1868 John Cook covered bridge – a 3-km loop.
You can stock up on local products at the village grocery (part of the Créateurs de saveurs network) and enjoy a picnic at the Parc des Braves.
You can also enjoy the terrace of Brasserie 11 Comtés, which, in the summer, pairs its offer with the one of the Cuisinier Déchaîné restaurant.
