Somerset

Aprox Population: 480

The village of Somerset is perched atop the Pembina Mountain with an unparalleled view of the St. Léon wind farm and the beautiful patchwork of surrounding fertile fields.

Many settlers came to live in the region at the end of the 1800s. The name of the village commemorates Somerset, in England, the birthplace of many of these first settlers.

Come and enjoy the beautiful landscape and visit the Gabrielle Roy Museum, which houses a collection of objects that once belonged to the Roy family as well as letters written by Gabrielle Roy herself. During the summer months, you can fill your basket at the Somerset Farmers’ Market, where you’ll find fresh produce, crafts and other local culinary specialties.
