"The Eastern Township Tartan was created by Mr. Richard Allan of Kinnear's Mills. In 1974 he went to Scotland to have it recognized. He was the founder of the Megantic Historical Society and owner of the last steam saw mill of the county. Spring 1981. Report from a branch of the Branch of the United Empire Loyalist Association of Canada: "The Association, now a year old, has over 6000 members, all proudly sporting our Eastern Townships tartan membership buttons, and . . . " Inverness, as former chief town of Megantic County, is proud to acknowledge this Tartan. Its colours represent the beauty of the county's landscape: the sumptuous green of the hills, the icy-white of the snow, the rich brown of the earth, the deep red of the autumn leaves and the bright yellow of dandelions and buttercups." The Kinnears Mills mentioned above are not weaving mills but a municipality located in the Municipalit? r?gionale de comt? des Appalaches in Quebec, Canada. It is part of the Chaudi?re-Appalaches region and the population is 326 as of 2009. It is known as the "Village of Churches," as four churches (Anglican, Catholic, Methodist, and United) are located close to each other in the village centre.
