Let's have a stop overthere!

In the wake of its 350th anniversary celebration (2017), comedian Michel Beaudry wrote this about La Prairie:

  • This city doesn't make a lot of noise, but it has become one of the south bank's hidden happy cards. La Prairie is becoming a great choice of place to live, grow up and live well without pretension.
  • An exceptional city where, notably, the first railroad in Canada was built.
  • Developed on a vast and beautiful bay, La Prairie still possess its picturesque old-world neighbourhood with a European flair.
  • There is still agriculture, large fields and an extraordinary public market.
  • Slowly but surely, La Prairie is becoming a great choice of place to live, grow up and live well without pretension.
  • In La Prairie's old town, many people make a detour to indulge a sweet tooth at Chez Bonbon, where old-fashioned confections, creamy sugar, and the unforgettable spruce beer coexist.

During summertime, nothing beats two hot dogs at Monique's with her sidewalk picnic tables. Happy Birthday, Laprairians!

Old La Prairie

La Prairie is located on the south bank of the river, facing the island of Montreal. The city occupies the banks of a bay downstream from Lake Saint-Louis and the Lachine Rapids. The area is particularly well served by a hydrographic network that facilitates access to the Richelieu River and thus to the whole territory south of Montreal. The old town is trapezoidal in shape. The land where the parish church is located has been considerably raised.

The La Prairie Heritage Site includes 55 Amerindian and Euro Quebec archaeological sites listed in the Inventaire des sites archéologiques du Québec. It has some 330 buildings in its oldest sector, including approximately 120 older buildings, 65 newer buildings, and 145 outbuildings. The heritage site is bounded by the St. Lawrence River (Lesser La Prairie Basin) to the west, St. Lawrence Street to the east, the St. James River to the north, and Longtin street to the south.

Steamboats and the railway behind La Prairie's economic growth

It all began with the Jesuits, lords of La Prairie, who settled here in 1667 to found their Amerindian mission. French settlers soon followed.

In the first half of the 19th century, La Prairie saw an unprecedented economic boom, based on the advent of the steamboat and the construction of the first railroad in Canada. The transportation of goods and passengers increased tenfold.

Steamboats first appeared on the St. Lawrence thanks to the brewer John Molson Sr. In fact, Molson became more famous for his boats than for his beer. In 1809, he began building the Accommodation, a ship built from scratch in Lower Canada. It was the first steam-powered vessel to link Montreal to Quebec City.

Steamboats revolutionized the history of transportation in Quebec and Canada by increasing the number of maritime links, and La Prairie played an important role in this revolution.

Brickmaking, a new economic movement for La Prairie

Although brickmaking in La Prairie was not famous at first, the rich clay deposits discovered in 1890 in the town ensured a promising future in this industry. Shale, rich in iron oxide, gives La Prairie bricks their characteristic blood red color. This type of brick is also known throughout the northeast of America for its durability; it is also called steel brick.

In the mid-1920s, the Saint Lawrence Pressed Brick company, specialised in gas-fired bricks, employed 300 men. In 1970, Saint Lawrence Pressed Brick built a new plant to replace the outdated facilities. At that time, 25 million bricks were produced annually. Today, Hanson Bricks is one of the most important manufacturers of fired clay bricks in Canada, and the only one in Quebec, with some 40 employees and an annual production of some 45 million units.
