Trécesson consists of two areas: Villemontel and La Ferme. A watershed runs through the western part of Trécesson, delineating the drainage basins of the St. Lawrence River and Hudson Bay. The two main rivers follow opposite routes: Villemontel River flows in a southerly direction, while Davy River runs in a northerly direction. A detention camp, built in La Ferme during World War I, was used as a place of transit for more than 1,200 prisoners. Until the late 1960s, the premises successively housed an experimental farm and an agricultural school. It is now a historical interpretation center and open to the public. Also, visit the Trécesson Arboretum, a 13-km interpretation trail that provides information on exotic tree species growing at Trécesson’s former forest nursery.
