Ogden

Incorporated in 1932, this municipality drew its name from British immigrant Isaac Ogden, a Loyalist who obtained much of the eastern portion of Stanstead Township in 1798. Touching the American border to the south and partly stretched along Lake Memphremagog, this Township has grown through a series of amalgamations to include communities such as Graniteville, Tomifobia and Griffin. Graniteville boasts the largest granite quarry in Canada. Extracted here since 1885, its granite covers some important buildings including the Saint-Benoît-du-Lac Abbey on Lake Memphremagog and the Sun Life building in Montreal. In town, you’ll also find the United Church (1896) with its granite foundations, ledge supports, and a wooden roof with pointed vaults. Formerly called Smith's Mills, Tomifobia contains a number of mills associated with local forestry operations. Weir Park – one of Ogden’s best-kept secrets – provides a public swimming beach as well as several campsites.
