Saint-Charles-Borromée, Quebec is a municipality in southwest-central Quebec, Canada on the Rivière l'Assomption. It is in Joliette Regional County Municipality. It is home to the heritage house "Maison Antoine-Lacombe", which holds many expositions through the year. It is also home to the "Centre Saint-Jean-Bosco" which annually hosts the "Mémoires et Racines" festival for folk music from various countries and from Quebec.The town takes its name from its original Roman Catholic parish, Saint-Charles-Borromée . The parish's name, in turn, derives from the French name of an Italian Roman Catholic prelate, Charles Borromeo, the archbishop of Milan, who founded Roman Catholic order of the Oblates, and became a canonised saint, in the Roman Catholic calendar.HistoryIn 1832, Barthelemy Joliette built a sawmill and a flour mill on the banks of the l'Assomption river. He was soon followed by pioneers from Saint-Ambroise-de Kildare, Saint-Paul, and Sainte-Melanie, who began to clear the area. There has, since 1840, the founding of the parish of Saint-Charles-Borromee, whose canonical occurred in 1843.Two years later, it's the foundation of Saint-Charles-Borromee-du-Village-d'Industrie, parish municipality at the origin of Joliette which decided to separate itself from the rest of the town in 1864 and was firstly named L'Industrie. It will cease to exist in 1847 and is territory became part of the Berthier county. The parish municipality of Saint-Charles-Borromee will be created in 1855. In 1864 when Joliette was erected, Saint-Charles-Borromee was amputated of an important part of his town but still covered a large area.
