Saint-Eustache, Québec

is located at the junction of the Rivière du Chêne and the Rivière des Mille-Iles, 30 km W of MONTRÉAL. The village was born when the owner of the seigneury of Rivière du Chêne gave the mill enough land in 1770 to build a church. The village is now an important residential suburban town. The main signs of local and regional history are the mill in the centre of town and the parish church (built, respectively, 1762 and 1780).
