The Prohibition Heritage Trail put on by the Brome-Missisquoi Tourism department recently finalized its preparations, with the attraction taking participants on a historic tour of the local area; included with it comes a dash of mystery and intrigue.

The trail covers characters, anecdotes and the various places that marked the temperance and prohibition period throughout the border region of Brome-Missisquoi between 1848 and 1933.

Guylaine Beaudoin, tourism development consultant at CLD Brome-Missisquoi, said, “a project involving the prohibition and temperance movement is one we’ve had for a long time. The only thing we didn’t know was how to get that information to people, so what we came up with was a circuit. It’s ten panels accompanied by audio recordings with a story set in the time period. It was fun because we really got to explore unique characters and settings in each one.”
