Louiseville, Maskinongé, Québec, Canada (Saint-Antoine-de-la-Rivière-du-Loup) - 1722 - Louiseville founded


In 1714, a mission was formed by the Récollets who dedicated it to the patronage of Anthony of Padua. In 1722, the Ursulines owned the seignory and attempted to change the name to Saint-Antoine-de-la-Rivière-Saint-Jean but the settlement became known as Rivière-du-Loup or Rivière-du-Loup-en-Haut after the seignory or local river.
