The Pioneer Trail- Way's Mills (137, rue Michaud, Coaticook, 819 849-6669 ou 1 866 665-6669, www.tourismecoaticook.qc.ca): In the 19th century, the three mills established on the banks of the River Niger were pre-eminent in the development of the hamlet of Way's Mills. Indeed, it was the owner of the carding and wool weaving mill, Daniel Way, after whom this idyllic place is named.
Mr. Way moved from the United States to Stanstead County in 1817. He then, in 1843, settled along the bank of the River Niger. Daniel was endowed with a remarkable business sense. He quickly acquired the properties which enabled him and his family members to take an active part in the economic growth of the village of Way's Mills.
