History and geography[edit]

The municipality was constituted on 2 October 1967. It consists of a mayor and three councillors.

The Saint John river valley is cut between two sets of peaks. The town is roughly 200m above sea level, while a peak of roughly 1000m is seen nearby. Frenchville, Maine is across the river. The steel truss Clair – Fort Kent Bridge is upriver about 5 miles, while downstream the next border crossing is the Edmundston–Madawaska Bridge (also a steel truss).

Economy[edit]

The nearest post office is upriver in Baker Brook. A railway and NB Route 120 go through town, as well as the St John River. The elementary school closed in 1996 due to lack of students. The Caisse Populaire Trois-Rives maintains a branch. The nearest RCMP detachment is in Clair, New Brunswick, while the nearest hospital is located in Edmunston.
