Mooers-Hemmingford border crossing
The Mooers – Hemmingford border crossing is a lightly traveled port that connects the communities of Mooers, New York and Hemmingford, Quebec. This crossing was first established in 1935 and the original border station still stands today. In 2014, the facility was included in the list of National Register of Historic Places.
Bootlegged liquor was brought across the border at Mooers which was considered as part of the Rum Trail during the Prohibition. By the time the border station was completed, the Prohibition was no longer in effect. However, alcohol smuggling was still a concern because the prices were considerably higher in the US.
