Mont-Saint-Hilaire, Québec, Canada

This area, part of the seigneury granted to Jean-Baptiste Hertel de Rouville in 1694, was sufficiently settled at the end of the 18th century to warrant the creation of a mission church, Saint-Hilaire.

Mont-Saint-Hilaire is located about 35 km east from MONTRÉAL on the Rivière RICHELIEU opposite BELOEIL. Cosily nestled between Mont Saint-Hilaire, the highest of the Monteregian Hills (411 m), and the Rivière Richelieu, Mont-Saint-Hilaire was created out of the merger of the original village of Saint-Hilaire (1855) with the town of Mont-Saint-Hilaire (1950).
