Cookshire-Eaton

Cookshire-Eaton, now with Cœur Villageois designation, is the largest municipality in the Haut-Saint-François MRC and within its 298-km2 territory with scenic routes, several villages can be found, such as Eaton Corner, one of the oldest villages in the Eastern Townships. The municipality drew its name from Captain Jack Cook, the first colonist to acquire land here in 1795. Architectural gems remain and still reflect the significant economic boom that this area experienced. Several stops on the Townships Trail are located in Cookshire-Eaton, including the Parc des Braves and its interpretation panels, the Maison de la culture John-Henry Pope, the Eaton Corner Museum, the John-Cook and McDermott covered bridges, and architectural treasures such as St. Peter’s Anglican Church and the former home of MP John Henry Pope, pioneer and founder of the Canadian Pacific Railway. This grand residence has been converted into a medical clinic in Cookshire. Located at the western end of the municipality, the Johnville Bog and Forest Park features boardwalk trails in an ecosystem that is remarkably diverse.
