Rolling Hills, Historic Hamlets (Stanstead E & Barnston W)

Description


The irresistable English charm of its hamlets and villages, the beauty of its rolling fields first cleared by the early pioneers...There are miles and miles of breathtaking countryside that await you in this charming tour of Stanstead East and Barnston West.  The view is spectacular, whether along the banks of the Niger River, or up on the heights of Brown's HIll.  

Follow the tour's itinerary, and discover photos, anecdotes and historical notes about the area's hidden corners, landmarks, and first settlers, including some interactive aspects.  It's all accessible on your mobile device!

A Suggestion:
Preload the tour on your mobile device before setting out, so you won't need to be connected to a 3G or WiFi network as you go along.

Deepen your knowledge of Eastern Townships history:  take your time to explore the sites, and take your own photos of the rich cultural and architectural heritage sites.  You can even enter our contest, "Four Seasons of Tradition in the Coaticook Region" (in French, "Les Quatres Saisons du Patrimoine dans la MRC de Coaticook")
