If these roads could speak, they would tell you all about the colourful lives of those who lived along the border in the early 1900s, when Prohibition reigned in the United States and tourism was a growing industry. Come and enjoy this heritage radio drama, enhanced by music and sound effects. A journey along roads with scenery of breath-taking beauty, dotted with New England-style architecture, where history and legends come together, to a little hamlet nestled in a valley surrounded by mountains and where the Missisquoi river flows, sometimes calm, sometimes turbulent!
The 20 members of the cast, professional and amateur actors, portray characters who lived in Glen Sutton, one of the nine hamlets of the Township of Sutton. Come and visit the places where these persons come alive again in a time-twisting plot written by Andrée Pelletier, co-writer of the TV series “Blanche,” the sequel to “Les Filles de Caleb.”
The audio-guided heritage tour follows the picturesque route called “The Townships Trail” (Chemin des Cantons), taking you deep into the Anglo-American heritage of the Townships. A tour on foot awaits you in Glen Sutton. This story is largely based on accounts by seniors in the Glen Sutton community, especially Jean Wilson Logan, daughter of Pearl Porter. The script has been written for the purpose of the tour, so it is not a biography. The locations of places and events were researched by Heritage Sutton.
This circuit has been made possible thanks to the financial contribution of the Town of Sutton and the Ministère de la Culture et des Communications du Québec.
