Harrington Quebec 19

Harrington is a township municipality in the Laurentides region of Quebec, Canada, part of the Argenteuil Regional County Municipality. It is located in the Laurentian Mountains, about 40 kilometres (25 mi) north-west of Lachute. Its population centres include Harrington, Lac-Keatley, Lakeview, Lost River, and Rivington.

Harrington is a land of lakes and rivers stocked with abundant fish. The Rouge River is the main river flowing through it, and the largest lakes include Lake (Lac) MacDonald, Green Lake, and Lake Harrington, each attracting a significant number of summer cottage vacationers. Its territory is characteristic of the Laurentian region with dense forests, rising to an elevation of 457 metres (1,499 ft) in the northeast, 30 metres (98 ft) more than Mont Chauve, which dominates Green Lake. The Lost River flows for miles from a spring that disappears under a calcareous rock between Gate Lake and Fraser Lake.

Harrington Township first appeared on the Gale and Duberger Map of 1795 but was not settled until 1830 when Scottish pioneers settled in the Lost River area in the east. 1841 the township was officially established, and in 1855, the township municipality was formed.

It is believed that the name Harrington may be attributed to a location in England. However, the local post office was identified under the name of Rivington between 1878 and 1961.

Lost River Presbyterian Church

Lost River Harrington

Presbyterianism is a part of the Reformed tradition within Protestantism that broke from the Roman Catholic Church. Presbyterian churches derive their name from the Presbyterian form of church government by representative assemblies of elders. Many Reformed churches are organized this way, but the word Presbyterian, when capitalized, is often applied to churches that trace their roots to the Church of Scotland or to English Dissenter groups that formed during the English Civil War.
