Hébertville is a municipality in Quebec, Canada.

History[edit]

Hébertville in 1906

Hébertville was founded in 1849. It was the first establishment to be colonised in the Lac Saint-Jean area. This municipality offered a future development near the Aulnaies Falls, situated at the heart of the village.

At this location, saw and flour mills were constructed to provide work and food for the first inhabitants.
