A brief history of Rivière Bleue

A trip trough time : from the first inhabitants John Morrison and Joseph Nadeau, to the beginning of Quiet Revolution.

What brought these families to settle here?  Why did Rivière-Bleue's population triple within ten years? How did a protestant evangelical baptist church come to be established in an essentially catholic village? Who was Alfred Lévesque?

Through photos and artifacts spanning a hundred years of our history, discover a typical agro-forestal back-country village which was lacking in nothing-not even bootlegging! 

Come see, and let us tell you the story.
