Mont-Rolland Station

A building resembling a “cottage orné”

Curé Labelle’s dream becomes reality

In 1887, Sainte-Adèle allocated funds of $10,000 to the construction of the railroad. The first train arrived in 1891, a few months after the death of its instigator, Curé Labelle, who never ceased to promote the importance of a railroad connecting Montreal and the Northern Townships.

“We need a railroad in the North, like in the South. Our people are as intelligent and as entrepreneurial as in the South. Give us the same tools, and we will prove it.”
- Curé Labelle

From train to bike

The current train station, built in 1928, is now a stop on the P’tit Train du Nord cycle path, which is travelled by over one million cyclists, pedestrians and cross-country skiers each year. That makes for a lot of people! 

From station to stopover

A coffee shop, a sports store, and interpretive signs about history are inside the station. Several elements recall the building’s original purpose, like the Café de la gare, while works of art inside take inspiration from the railway.
