Acton Vale, Québec, Canada

Acton Vale is a small manufacturing centre on the Rivière Le Renne, about 25 km southwest of DRUMMONDVILLE. The first settlers of the township of Acton were either United Empire LOYALISTS or British, especially Scots, who homesteaded the area in the 1830s. Acton Vale benefited from the building of the ST LAWRENCE AND ATLANTIC RAILROAD line to Portland in the early 1850s and from the discovery, in 1857, of a rich copper deposit located less than 1 km from the railway station. Even though the various mining operations lasted less than 6 years, they had a tremendous impact on the early development of the community. In 1861 it was incorporated as a village.
