Saint-Léonard, New Brunswick, Canada

Saint-Léonard, NB, incorporated as a town in 1920... The Town of Saint Léonard is a predominantly French-speaking community, named in honour of an early settler, Léonard Coombes. In the late 18th century, Acadians settled this area along the SAINT JOHN RIVER, midway between Grand Falls and Edmundston, but it was not until near the mid-19th century that a large number of settlers arrived.

Agriculture was supplemented by forestry, but since the mid 20th century, farming has greatly diminished... The town is a border crossing point directly across the river from Van Buren, Maine.
