The South Shore of Québec has a complex history demonstrated by an evolution that has been characterized, over the centuries, by its economic, maritime, railway and industrial development plan. The territorial expansion of the South Shore is due to the birth of several municipalities and cities that subsequently merged between the middle of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twenty-first century.
Saint-Joseph-de-la-Pointe-Lévy (or Saint-Joseph-de-Lévis at the beginning of the nineteenth century) is the first parish / municipality of the South Shore of Quebec that will become the Village of Lauzon in 1867 and the City Lauzon in 1910. It also took the title of city in the 1950s and will become a city in the early 1980s. Lévis was born west of Lauzon, May 18, 1861, under the initiative of Father Joseph-David Deziel. It was formed by the regrouping of the municipality of Notre-Dame-de-la-Victoire and the City of Aubigny (1849-1861). In 1916, the Villemay district (formerly the Saint-Villemay fiefdom) will be integrated into the new city. The village municipality of Bienville, which had an ephemeral existence (1863-1924), was partly annexed to Lauzon and partly to Lévis. The municipal name of Lévis was chosen in honor of François Gaston de Lévis (1719-1787), hero of the Battle of Sainte-Foy in 1760. The first elected mayor is Mr. Louis Carrier who will be posted at the town hall of Lévis from 1861 to 1870. On August 6, 1861, the first city council sat in the first town hall at 4 Wolfe Street. This house belonged to the notary Léon Roy (father of Pierre-Georges Roy and Joseph-Edmond Roy) and it was used from 1861 to 1865. It was demolished in 1900 to make way for a two-family house.
