The first French colonists settled in the “Rapid Dish” and undertook the construction of their house close to the river maskoutain, the Yamaska, in order to facilitate the clearing of the grounds which was for the construction of warships French, as well as agriculture.

He invited his colonists then to build himself close to this Faille and it is with the surroundings that new the Saint-Hyacinthe will develop, current economic heart. Markets, centers, mill, place of worship, all the buildings of scale are in this new center. The manor seigneurial is even built on a hillock close to the river.
