Saint-Denis-sur-Richelieu, Québec, Canada

Saint-Denis-sur-Richelieu is located on Rivière RICHELIEU, 30 km northwest of SAINT-HYACINTHE. It took its name from the Saint-Denis seigneury, granted in 1694 to Louis de Gannes, Sieur de Falaise, and named in honour of his wife, Barbe Denis. In the early 19th century Saint-Denis was a major centre for grain shipments to Québec City. It also had business dealings with Montréal and was the fastest-developing centre in the lower Richelieu region. It was home to Canada's largest hat-making industry as well as to several craft and pottery workshops.
