Trepanier was once called The New Townsite. A cement pipe plant operated here from 1910 to 1915. In 1913, Alexander Ross joined an Indian bear hunt during which the Indian Chief was attacked by a bear and his scalp was almost torn off. Ross extracted two bones and the wound healed. Trepanier is a word which is representative of the removal of bone, usually from the skull, hence the name Trepanier. Pebble beaches, picnic tables, a boat launch and some private beaches and docks are located here.
