On this day in Our Islands History

In 1875, the villagers of Etang-du-Nord created the new Municipal Corporation. On the second day of January, Mister J.B. Painchaud, Mayor of the islands and village of Amherst and Prefect of the Magdalen Islands, conveyed a public assembly to elect seven councilors for the new municipality of Etang-du-Nord.
