Sainte-Cécile-de-Whitton

The pioneer families of Sainte-Cécile-de-Whitton settled in the area starting in 1870, arriving in force from St-Romain and St-Sébastien. Other English colonists decided to settle more along the 10th range road. At the base of Mount Sainte-Cécile, to the north of Lac-Mégantic, the municipality of Sainte-Cécile-de-Whitton enjoys spectacular surroundings along the banks of the Chaudière River. Jean-Baptiste Verret built its church in 1901. Local residents still work in the forestry and agricultural industries, as well as in sugar bushes and some world-famous granite businesses: Tuiles Grani-Décor and Tranches Polycor (Granit Bussière, Tuiles et Tranches Polycor), specializing in construction stone and residential and commercial stone (ex.: countertops, flooring, etc.) This local feature explains the name of the surrounding regional county municipality – Granit. The area is one of tranquility and quiet industriousness, a combination that makes it a great place to live.
