Little St-Pierre River

This is the last above-ground remnant of the Little St. Pierre River, which once flowed some 15 kilometres downstream to Pointe à Callière and the open waters of the St. Lawrence. The course of the Little St-Pierre has been altered and built over numerous times since Samuel de Champlain first spotted its waves in 1611, but even as late as the 1950s, visitors to Meadowbrook could still navigate this segment of the river with watercraft.
