The Black River Depot was located on a hillside overlooking Lake Travers (now called Lac Branssat) in Pontiac County, Quebec within timber limits that were owned by the McLachlin Brothers beginning around 1866. Charles Macnamara visited the depot multiple times from 1900-1904 and it is written about extensively in his manuscript, 'Life in the Lumber Camps of the McLachlin Brothers of Arnprior, Ontario.'
