Stornoway

Stornoway, with its Scottish place name, and whose church steeple can be seen at the top of a hill, is well situated at the crossroads of routes 161 and 108. Three cemeteries serve as the final resting places of the first pioneers and a monument recalls the history of the founding families. The Catholic Church (1920) has a superb statue of Saint-Alphonse by renowned sculptor Louis Jobin. At the Summit Drive intersection, with a stunning view of the mountains, there is a stop featuring an illuminated star finder, symbolic of the International Dark Sky Reserve. On Route 161, along the banks of the Legendre River, a former flour mill is a tangible sign of the arrival of French Canadians.
