fort Chambly

by Claire June. 16, 2011 3040 views

Fort Chambly is located at the edge of the Richelieu River, at the foot of the Chambly rapids. Built in 1711, this imposing stone fortification protected New France from a potential British invasion. The fort has resisted the upheavals of history and remains a valued reminder of the French presence in North America.

Restored by Parks Canada, Fort Chambly now houses exhibitions showcasing key moments in the history of New France.
