Stornoway

Stornoway, whose church steeple can be seen at the top of a hill, is well-situated at the crossroads of routes 161 and 108, a natural junction now designated a Village-Relais (designation that the town or village provides essential roadside services as well as a safe and attractive place to stop). Its name was chosen by its Scottish founders for the main town on the Isle of Lewis in Scotland. Three cemeteries serve as the final resting places of the first pioneers and a monument that faces the church 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 and the Parc National de Frontenac nearby, there is a stop featuring information panels and an illuminated star finder, a reminder of the Mount Megantic International Dark Sky Reserve’s theme. On Route 161, along the banks of the Legendre River, a former flour mill is a tangible sign of the arrival of French Canadians.
