Dudswell now includes Bishopton (1912) and Marbleton (1895), the latter admitted in 2001 into the prestigious Association of Quebec’s Most Beautiful Villages. Both towns lie in the hollow of a wide hilly area. The development of Dudswell was the result of the lime and limestone industries, which also attracted French Canadian workers.
