   The Hatley Municipality is part of the Eastern Townships and is situated on the east side of lake Massawippi. Its territory is divided north and south by route 143 and east and west by route 208. We are twenty minutes to half and hour from Sherbrooke, Magog, Coaticook and the U.S. border. Our population is 632 permanent residents and 950 with our seasonal summer residents.

The Hatley Municipality dates back to the 18th century. We have two charming historical villages: Hatley and Massawippi. Bacon's Bay, a summer resort of the 208 by the lake near Ayer's Cliff, is an active summer resort and camp ground built on the waters edge of lake Massawippi and the Niger river. To the north west of the municipality along the lake road is the Woodland's Bay area. It is a growing residential district that takes advantage of the lake views, some of which were seen in the movie Grey Owl. It offers all the pleasures of the beach, the lake and country activities.

Hatley Village is situated on the east side of the municipality. It is reached by route 208. Hatley was founded in 1799. Its celebrating his bi-centennial in 1999. Hatley is a charming hamlet with streets lined with maple trees and old century homes. There are two historical churches, three cemeteries where one can find the grave and family names of the original settlers of the area. On the village common you will find St. James Anglican church which is recognised by the Ministry of Cultural Affairs as an historical monument. Next to the church is St.-James Community Hall once known as Charleston Academy, later as the Hatley Intermediate school. It now holds on the second floor the Hatley Municipal Library. Hatley also has one the oldest Canada Day celebrations and parades in Canada.

When driving on route 143 going through our municipality you will see beautiful vistas of the mountain with Massawippi Lake spread at his feet. On a clear day, you can see Vermont's Jay Peak. Many an artist and tourists have stopped to appreciate the view. Massawippi is a precious small village with attractive old century homes many with grand views of the lake, others have great vistas of the country side. Turning on the 208 toward Ayer's Cliff you will find a charming historical church, this Union Church was founded in 1861, across the road is the community hall built in 1874. Its in Massawippi that you will find our new Town Hall. Come see the beauty of our villages.
