L'Acadie, Québec, Canada

L'Acadie is a town in the Montérégie region of Quebec, Canada, on the west side of the Richelieu River, across from Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec. It was about 30 miles (50 km) from Montreal, and about the same distance from the United States border at the head of Lake Champlain. *In 2001 L'Acadie merged with neighbouring Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, along with several other neighbouring towns and villages.

The area was settled in the late 18th century by wandering Acadians, after whom the town was eventually named. wikipedia
