Presented by
Ville de Coaticook

The ghosts accompany you through the self-guided tours of Voices from Another Time is a visit of Coaticook’s ten heritage cemeteries. The voices of the region's pioneers inform you in the various ancestral cemeteries found there. Enjoy a memorable hearing experience on site, enhanced with photographs and historical documents available on the screen of your cell phone.


The interactive map of each cemetery present the stories on demand for each point of interest. 


The 10 self-guided tours of our network Voices from Another Time will allow you to discover the Coaticook region from a little-known and unique angle. 

At each site, a guide will accompany you to unveil its secrets, and you’ll hear more than a dozen pioneers—ghosts from the grave—share their tales from another time. Together with its photographs and archival documents, this audioguide will help make each of your cemetery visits a memorable one.

Tiny burial grounds, where American settlers were laid to rest, hidden in the turn in a country road, graveyards in hamlets and villages overlooking beautiful landscapes, vast urban cemeteries resembling parks… each of the 10 cemeteries on the tour has a history and several stories to tell. With monuments of great artistic merit, they are all unique, reflecting the identity of the Eastern Townships.
