The “Pearl of the Townships,” Coaticook has fully earned its reputation thanks to the beauty of its hills and valleys. It was settled in the 1820s and 1830s by Americans and Brits, and the municipality was finally incorporated in 1864. Following the merger of the municipalities of Barnston and Barford townships in 1999, the surface area of Coaticook increased considerably.

Way's Mill / Barnston-Ouest

Way's Mill / Barnston-Ouest

It is believed the Algonquin tread the soil of Barnston Township between 1300 and 1680. The Abenaki followed suit, then the Loyalists and Irish, and the Francophone wave began with the expansion of the railway around 1850. Today, residents live in the hamlets of Way’s Mills and Kingscroft, which have been part of Barnston West since 1946. An American manufacturer of tweed and flannel, L. S. Way, arrived around 1808, leaving his name to the village nestled in a bend of the Niger River, which is also crossed by Holmes Road.
