Mont Louis


Mont Louis, a village and harbour in Gaspé county, Quebec, on the south shore of the St. Lawrence river, 30 miles east of Ste. Anne des Monts, at the mouth of the Mont Louis river. It is one of the few good harbours on the north shore of the Gaspé peninsula, and was a fishing station of some importance during the French régime, but was destroyed by the British in 1759. It is named after the seigniory of Mont Louis, granted in 1725, the seigniory embracing the mountainous region to the south, to which was given the name of Louis XIV.
