The Canaan-Hereford Road Border Crossing connects the towns of Saint-Herménégilde, Quebec and Canaan, Vermont. Remnants of the old Canaan Line House still stand abandoned between the two border inspection stations. It once served as a popular watering hole during Prohibition.[1] Both the US and Canadian border inspection stations are among the oldest buildings still being operated by the respective agencies.
