Description From Owner:

  • Pop. 350. In East Ferris T., Nipissing Dist., on the SW shore ofL. Nosbonsing, 21 km. SE of North Bay.
  • The first settlers, in 1886, were brothers Cleophas, Alexandre, Joseph-Alphonse, and Alvarez Roberts Levesque who paddled their canoe to the head of the lake and built themselves a house.
  • The tiny settlement was fIrst known as Levesque. Rev. Moise Legault was the fIrst priest to visit the pioneer settlers. In 1887 a chapel was built under the guidance of Rev. Georges-Thomas Gagnon.
  • It was replaced in 1902 by a church built by residents under the direction of Father Joseph-Antonin Astor, who ran the mission, Tete du Lac (head of the lake).
  • Two years later the church was destroyed by fIre. In 1913 a hurricane heavily damaged another church erected on the same site.
  • In 1965 an impressive new structure, the Church of St. Thomas Aquinas, was built. The post office, fIrst named Nosbonsing after the lake, was renamed Astorville to honour Father Astor.
