Elgin Township - One of the smallest municipalies in Québec.
Bounded by the Trout and Chateauguay rivers and the Quebec - United States border, Elgin is a totally rural community of less than 500 people. Its small fields and many stone houses attest to the first Scottish settlers who began arriving in the early 1800s.
In 1855, the Municipality of the Township of Elgin was formed with the present town hall being built in 1869. The councillors and people of Elgin continue to value and protect their 'forgotten corner of Quebec, with its history, quiet roads, forests and rivers.
The first settlers of Elgin were of Scottish origin and this may have accounted for the thrift which has always been exercised in this municipality's affairs.
Among the settlers was Joseph Scriver, who provided the first sawmill for the early community.
Later, an American named Buck provided for gristing facilities and saved the people from a long trek to have their grain ground into flour.
Elgin started in 1821 with an American named "Buck", and we've been careful with the "buck" ever since!
