The station area

Station, Rivière-du-Loup

In a few years, several neighbourhoods grew up near the station. Workers, businessmen, industrial leaders, and hotel-keepers first established themselves along Lake Temiscouata Road, which led to the railway installations, and later, on the other bank of the Rivière du Loup. The first streets were laid out in these sectors in the 1880s.
