North Hatley

Located at the outlet of Lake Massawippi, “lake of deep waters,” North Hatley was originally called the Outlet. It was first populated by the Abenakis, who hunted, fished, and held their ceremonies along the St. Francis River.

North Hatley

In 1792, Ebenezer Hovey, captain of the militia in Conneticut, and Henry Cull submitted their request to the British Cown to obtain a concession of lands, which they received on March 25, 1803. North Hatley was fouded in 1897 at the northern tip of Lake Massawippi. Like its neighbouring village of Hatley, North Hatley grew thanks to the effort of immigrants gathered under the Company of Associates, whose goal was to obtain concessions in Lower Canada. In 1880, the construction of a rail line consolidated the village reputation as a resort, to the point that between 1902 and 1909, it reached a record number of tourists.
