NotesThe name of Saint-Henri comes from a bishop of Quebec, Henri-Marie du Breuil de Pontbriand. The territory of Saint-Henri was initially cleared in 1731 by many people, including those from Beaumont, Sainte-Foy, Saint-Michel, and the Île d'Orléans. The settlers' economy was driven by a mill built in 1746 and some of these settlers moved into what is the present day Saint-Henri. The first religious mission in Saint-Henri began in 1749 and a chapel was built in 1750. A church was built in 1782 and demolished in 1880 after a new church, still used to this day, was opened in 1879. On May 25, 1833, Saint-Henri was canonically erected. It became a Municipality Parish on July 1, 1845 and then a Municipality Village on July 8, 1913. On January 25, 1922, the Municipality Boyer River was established. The merger of these municipalities in 1976 formed the current Saint-Henri. The economy of Saint-Henri was partially sustained by the Quebec Central train in 1873, which crossed part of the parish and led to the construction of a station. Today, agriculture is the central industry of Saint-Henri.
