Description

In a few words

Discover the history of the Hautes-Appalaches townships, a territory settled by the English, Irish and Scots, who brought along their customs, know-how, music and way of life. The guide will fascinate you with tales about the ancestors to whom the village pays tribute. The life of James Kinnear and Harriet Wilson was marked by their determination to contribute to establishing a thriving economy and community. James operated mills whereas Harriet started the first general store in 1847, which would become a very prosperous business indeed. During your tour, characters in period costumes will tell you about their lives in the 19th century. An interactive exhibition will introduce you to the agriculture of that same era. Take advantage of your visit to Kinnear's Mills to discover its hiking trails.
