Assorted Doors from a Nearby Village
Thanks to everyone for the warm wishes last week while I rested and gave body the time it needed to kick a nasty cold. Aside from a few sniffles I’m feeling pretty much back to normal and a few days ago I even made it out for a short doorscursion in the nearby village/town of Mascouche.
The French began settlements along the banks of the Mascouche river as far back as the late 1600’s.
Being somewhat remote compared to the hundreds of towns and villages that sprung up along the St. Lawrence river, villages like Mascouche grew slowly, developing out of hunting and trapping posts that later, as the forests were cleared, became large seigneurial farms.
Today, as a remote suburb on a commuter rail line that takes passengers into downtown Montreal in less than an hour, the town has a growing population of just under 50,000. Somehow despite the recent rapid development the town has managed to preserve quite a few of it’s historic 200-250 year-old farmhouses.
Some are majestic.
Some are quaint.
And some like this 260 year-old field-stone gem…
…are downright magnificent 🙂
Here are a few of my other interesting door discoveries from this walkabout:
