Story of the " VILLAGE FRASER" and the "FRASER GENERAL STORE"
In 1906, the Fraser Company brings with it its skill workers. Like employers, they are Scottish Presbyterians.
The company build their houses, a chapel, a school and a general store.
Today, this sector Cabano overlooking Lake Temiscouata is still called "The Village Fraser"
Donald Fraser buys at a price of $ 113 000 cash finest timber limits Témiscouata County, under the guidance of his son Archibald, who had earlier toured the country.
Extract of a letter from Archibald Fraser to his father Donald in 1897
forgive my boldness, but it seemed that for the mill that you want to operate, there is no better place than the mission called Cabano .... the sweetness of the strike, its appearance small bay, near the river and the broad vision that is on the lake, not to mention the courage and willingness to work with his people who are without equal, make this village the best place to install a big mill timber ... With all due respect, your son truly."
Archibald takes from the beginning, the management of the mill.
The erection of the mill company Fraser marks the origin of the growing population and prosperity of Cabano and gives it its unique village worker.
Throughout the first half of the twintieth century, the mill Fraser is the largest employer of Temiscouata.
The Temiscouata Railway took office in 1889, endles the transportation of timber in addition to passenger and postal transport. In 1950, the train is sold to Canadian National, which continued for two decades the transport timber.
