Between this cemetery and the wooded island to the south, once lay the village of Wales. First a land grant to Dr. J Stuart, U.E.L., it became the local commercial centre, after 1856, when the railroad arrived. It was named Wales after the Prince of Wales' 1860 visit. On July 1, 1958, the spreading waters of Lake St. Lawrence followed Hoople Creek to cover Canada's only "Wales".

Entre le cimetière et l'Île Boisée au sud, existait Wales, nomme ainsi a la suite d'un court sejour du Prince de Galles en 1860. Au début, la couronne a fait un don de terre au Dr J. Stuart. Après la construction du chemin de fer en 1856, le village est devenu le centre de commerce règional. En 1958, le lac Saint- Laurent recouvrait l'unique "Wales" du Canada.
