Quebec's Eastern Townships: A border runs through Stanstead
I was going through photos of my numerous trips to Canada, and ran across this unusual one below. It's of a fellow travel journalist lying on the border that runs through the Haskell Free Library and Opera House in Stanstead, Quebec (above).
Located in the Eastern Townships, one of Stanstead's claims to fame is that the Canada/USA border runs right through the library: 60% of the building is in Stanstead and 40% in Derby Line, Vermont.You can enter the library in Vermont and check out your books in Quebec!
