People, Pictures and News From the Past

Where is Lachenaie, Québec, Canada? 

Lachenaie is an off-island suburb of Montreal, in southwestern Quebec, Canada on the Rivière des Prairies. It is located within the city of Terrebonne, and is in the Regional County Municipality of Les Moulins. Population: (2001): 21,709

The city of Lachenaie is the oldest one and was founded in 1670 by Lord Charles Aubert de Lachenaye. Some natives were already present on this territory at the time. The colonisation really started in 1647 when Lachenaie was merged with the Repentigny Seigniory. Another Lord, the abbot Louis Lepage de Ste-Claire built the first church in 1734 and the first manor in 1735. A few years later, the abbot Lepage equipped the city with a saw mill and a flour mill.Wikipedia
