Keys to History

In 1910, St. Jérôme was the most important municipality in the Lower Laurentians. It was a small industrial town, with paper and rubber factories, as well as being a service centre for the surrounding countryside. The town had been linked to Montreal by rail since 1876 thanks to the repeated requests of Father Labelle, who campaigned for a northern railway. Its station had the classical structure of 19th-century railway stations. A destination for some, St. Jérôme was for others the first stage on a longer journey to the north.
