Presented byMunicipalité de Wentworth‑Nord
In the heart of the MRC des Pays-d'en-Haut, discover the history of Wentworth-Nord, a municipality made up of three hamlets separated from each other by several kilometers, but connected by the main road.
The municipality of Wentworth-North was created in 1958 when the original Wentworth Township was split into two municipalities. The three hamlets that comprise the municipality of Wentworth-North - Saint-Michel, Laurel and Montfort - are several kilometers apart, but are connected by the main road. The 152-km2 territory is home to 105 lakes and a population of 1,672 inhabitants (2021 data).
Come summer, the population increases significantly with the influx of vacationers returning to their cottages and tourists visiting outdoor sites and attractions. We invite you to discover the distinctive character of each hamlet through this heritage tour, which will take you from the 19th century to today.
Use the Preload option of the BaladoDiscovery mobile application to access the interactive map and offline content (without Internet) rendered on site.
To reach point 8, the Good Shepherd Cemetery, leave the car in front of the post office boxes and walk a few yards west along Lost River Road. The cemetery is across from 3950 Lost River Road.
Municipal parking is available at Montfort Hall as well as at City Hall at 3488, Main Road.
Enjoy your visit!
