Road going to the beach, Cacouna, P.Q.
In the second half of the 19th century, Chemin de la Grève was renamed Route du Port. Many artisans, including cobblers, carpenters, cabinetmakers, blacksmiths, bakers, stylists, seamstresses, and tailors, set up shop along the busy road to meet the needs of villagers and summer residents. And this is where was established in 1891, the small Maliseet Reserve. (See the Maritime Cacouna and its Old Hamlets tour).
