Take your pick: adrenaline packed or slow and contemplative?
Created from the merger of the border villages of Beebe Plain and Rock Island with their neighbour Stanstead, this municipality is an open-air history book and is proud to have the title of one of Quebec’s most beautiful villages. Magnificent 19th-century buildings and homes border Dufferin Street, on which are also located the prestigious Stanstead College (1872) and the Colby-Curtis Museum, housed in the beautiful Carrollcroft home (1859), a Classical Revival style villa made of granite, a local stone. The street extends to the world’s most friendly border, where you will find CANUSA (Canada-USA) Street, which is divided in the centre by the border, as is the Haskell Opera House, built in 1901. A most rare characteristic, in the Opera House, the audience sits in the United States, while the artists perform on the stage, which is on Canadian soil! A stop on the Townships Trail, this town is also linked to the Sentier Nature Tomifobia trail and has one of the most beautiful panoramic golf courses in the region, Dufferin Heights.
