East Bolton in Memphrémagog MRC, Quebec — Central Canada (French-Canadian)
Former Bolton Township Hall
French text appears above English text.
Passage of the Municipal and Road Act for Lower Canada in 1855 resulted in the construction of many public halls in the English-speaking communities of rural Quebec during the second half of the 19th century. This township hall was erected in 1867 by community members using wood obtained locally. It served as a council chamber and social meeting place as well as accommodating a school on the ground floor. A fine example of regional building traditions, this structure stands as a graceful tribute to the development of local self-government and to community spirit.
Erected 1984 by Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada.
