Chambly is a city in southwestern Quebec, Canada, about 25km to the south east of Montreal.It was formed from the merger in 1965 of Fort-Chambly (formerly Chambly-Canton prior to 1952) and the old city of Chambly (formerly Chambly-Bassin prior to 1952, and earlier sometimes called Bassin-de-Chambly).GeographyIt sits on the Richelieu River in the Regional County Municipality of La-Vallée-du-Richelieu, at.HistoryPeople have lived in Chambly since the 17th century, but Chambly was not incorporated as a city until 1965.Samuel de Champlain passed through the area that came to be the site of the town of Chambly, QC, in 1609., when he wrote the following in his journal:The College of Chambly was chartered on March 21, 1835 in Lower Canada.Fort ChamblyChambly is home to the massive Fort Chambly, built with local stone between 1709 and 1711 in the style of Vauban's classic French fortifications. It was built at the mouth of a large basin, on the site of successive wooden forts dating back to 1665. Fort Chambly was the largest in a series of fortifications on the shores of what was known as the Iroquois River (later known as the Chambly River, finally becoming the Richelieu River in the nineteenth century). Originally called Fort Saint-Louis, it soon came to be known by the name of its first commanding officer, Jacques de Chambly, to whom the surrounding seigniory was granted in 1672. It was intended to protect New France in general (and Montreal in specific) from attack from hostile natives and the English. Today, the fort is run by Parks Canada and is designated a National Historic Site of Canada, and houses a museum and interpretive center, and hosts historical re-enactments of military drills (as well as a number of contemporary cultural events).
