Longueuil, Québec, Canada (Saint-Antoine-de-Longueuil) - 1832 - The Village of Longueuil
is on the shore of the St. Lawrence and near the rivulet St. Antoine; it contains 65 houses including a parsonage and 2 schools, at each of which 16 scholars are instructed. Near the village was the ancient fort of Longueuil, one of the many formerly raised as barriers against the Iroquois nation; but its site is now covered by a very handsome well-built church, 130 ft. by 55, which stands on the west side of the road to Chambly. The situation of this little place and its vicinity is so pleasant, that many persons of the first respectability reside hereabout; it was long the favorite retreat of the late catholic bishop of Quebec, M. Deneaux, who when raised to that dignity would not forsake the spot he so much admired...
