Created in 1971 by the merger of seven towns, the Town of Lac-Brome surrounds the magnificent lake of the same name.


Loyalists were the first to colonize the region after the American Revolution. Their influence and heritage are well preserved in Knowlton, which is the centre of Brome Lake, and which is named in honour of Paul Holland Knowlton. Knowlton built the first dam and mill on the Cold Brook. Since about 1867, people have been attracted to this area, which the Canadian Handbook Tourist Guide described as extraordinary. In May 1997, the magazine L’Actualité designated Knowlton one of the twenty most beautiful villages in Quebec.

Lac-Brome: must-see

Tourist office Lac-Brome (696, rue Lakeside, Lac-Brome, 450 243-1221, Victorian village animated on the shores of Lake Brome, particularly in the summer and during weekends. Vacationers discover it with pleasure due to its location overlooking the lake and to the beauty of the surrounding landscapes and charming appearance of its streets filled with boutiques, antiques and cafés.

The presence of three churches proves the coexistence of cultures and religions: Catholic, Anglican and Methodist, the latter built in 1875, displays a Victorian influence. Beautiful homes and a beautiful pond charm the center of the village. Duck breeding is a specialty of Lake Brome.
