Take your pick: adrenaline packed or slow and contemplative?
In 1796, Dunham was the first township in the region to be proclaimed and the first to be officially established in Lower Canada. With its numerous stone and brick houses, three churches, and fenced properties, the village core is typical of those from the Loyalist era. Today, several restaurants and boutiques are located in impressive buildings from the past. The birthplace of Quebec’s grape-growing industry, Dunham is the midpoint on the Brome-Missisquoi Wine Route, the province’s first wine route. This route features 22 vineyards, each providing a memorable olfactory, tasting, and visual experience. When it’s time to harvest the grapes, it’s also time to pick berries, vegetables, and apples nearby. The spring event, Clé des Champs, celebrates the village’s rural, food-focused character.
