Saint-Pierre-de-l'Île-d'Orléans, Québec, Canada

People, Pictures and News From the Past

Where is Saint-Pierre-de-l'Île-d'Orléans, Québec, Canada? 

Saint-Pierre-de-l'Île-d'Orléans is a municipality in the Capitale-Nationale region of Quebec, Canada, part of the L'Île-d'Orléans Regional County Municipality. It is situated on the west side of Orléans Island. Until 1997, it was known simply as Saint-Pierre.

The first European settlers came to the area around 1660. They constructed the first chapel in 1662 and by 1679 the Parish of Saint-Pierre-et-Saint-Paul was formed which at that time also included the territory of Sainte-Pétronille.

In 1845, the Parish Municipality was formed under the name of Saint-Pierre-Isle-d'Orléans, probably in honour of Apostle Peter. It was abolished two years later in 1847 when it became part of the County Municipality, but restored again in 1855 as Saint-Pierre-et-Saint-Paul.

In 1874, it lost a portion of its territory when Sainte-Pétronille separated and became a municipality. Over time, only the "Saint-Pierre" part of the name was retained.Wikipedia
