Keys to History

Here is the little station in Sainte Anne des Plaines. This peaceful village in Terrebonne County had been served by Canadian Pacific since the founding of the company through a branch line that left the main line towards St. Jérôme, near Ste. Thérèse. Easy access to Montreal by rail no doubt contributed to the great rural exodus movement that marked that municipality.
