Once an overnight stop on the long stagecoach trip from Prescott to Ottawa, Heckston was named after resident John Heck, who was the grandson of the founder of Methodism in Canada.
With a general store (Shelley's Kitchen) offering hearty home-baked goods, Heckston is a restful village where cyclists and motorists can fuel up and recharge before continuing their journeys.
Things to do in Heckston
