Church Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts

Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts ( Laurentides )

The village itself is centred around a Catholic church built in 1904. In 1865, the land on which the church stands was donated to the parish by Dr. Euseble Larocque, brother of the Monsignor. Dr. Larocque had amassed a fortune in the California Gold Rush and had decided to live the life of a seigneur. He bought several farms around Lac à la Truite (Trout Lake) and area but was too kind-hearted to ask for the rents. There is also a smaller Anglican church, “Holy Trinity Anglican Parish”, in the town. In 1926 the Lord Bishop of the Anglican Church of Montreal presided over the dedication of the current building.
