Pioneers of Beechwood Ave



Description

Stcharleschurchbeechwood_250

Beechwood Avenue is one of the main thoroughfares of Quartier Vanier. It appears on maps of the area as early as the 1870s. Early on, it was used mainly to reach the Protestant cemetery of the same name, which acquired considerable importance throughout the region. Slowly, a number of pioneers arrived, mostly of French Canadian origin. They settled south of this road and established the village of Clarkstown towards the end of the nineteenth century.

Cette promenade a également lieu en français.
